A fundraising event is due to be held this weekend at Louise Deli on Upper Giles Street for the family of Victoria Komada.

The one-year-old from north Norwich needs to raise more than £300,000 by her second birthday to have corrective surgery to her legs.

She was born with one in a million condition bilateral tibial hemimelia, and doctors in the UK recommended amputation.

Pioneering surgery at the Paley Institute in Florida needs to be done by June and involves a 12-month stay in the USA and three operations.

'There is some chance she would be fully healthy and walk normally,' said Daruisz Komada, Victoria's dad.
