A charity event for a girl from north Norwich battling against time to avoid a double leg amputation has raised close to £2,000.
The owners of the Louise Deli on Upper Giles Street held the event at Old Catton Village hall on February 25, and raised a total of around £1,750.
One-year-old Victoria Komada was born with one in a million condition bilateral tibial hemimilia, and doctors in the UK recommended amputation.
But a specialist in Florida has offered treatment, which costs more than £300,000 and should be done by her second birthday.
The family has been fundraising in Poland and the UK, and currently have around £100,000 for the operation.
