A girl with Cerebral Palsy is now able to safely relax with her family thanks to a donation.

Sophie Frosdick, eight, from Great Yarmouth needs specialist postural support as she could easily fall off the family sofa.

She needed a specially designed chair called a PPod which would be more comfortable and safer to sit in and provide postural support.

The chair will reduce the risk of spinal deformity and has a harness to ensure Sophie can't fall out.

Mum Sonya Frosdick said: 'The new PPod means she is back at the heart of family life. When she was unwell last week she was able to sit in her chair, comfortable and secure, rather than be in bed all the time.

She added: 'Sophie is happier than ever, sitting in her new PPod.'

Staff from the River Island store in Norwich raised £828 for the Newlife charity to purchase the specialist chair for Sophie to be able use at home.
