Children’s hospital given �2,000 gift

Miss Universe Norfolk presented �2,000 to the Jenny Lind Children's Hospital for the physiotherapy and orthopaedic department to help with specialist equipment for children with cerebral palsy.

Roxy Osborne, a personal trainer from Cromer, won the 2012 competition and will co-host the next Miss Universe Norfolk final on February 10.

Those in the Norfolk competition raised the money for the Hemraj Goyal Foundation which gives money and support to other charities. The foundation gave the money to the Strongbones Children's Charitable trust who then gave it to the hospital.

The money will go towards a �12,000 target hoped to be raised by February for specialist equipment such as a treadmill and hoist for the hospital department.

Rachael Hutchinson, a paediatric orthopaedic consultant at the hospital, said: 'Having this equipment in the hospital permanently will make a big difference post-operation from a rehabilitation point of view.'
