Six-year-old Sasha Nutley was rewarded with a holiday when she won a special recognition award at the Stars of Norfolk and Waveney Awards in December 2015.

Earlier that year, when she was just four, Sasha dialled 999 after she was unable to wake her mum up when she fell unconscious in their home in Marham.

Mum Emma suffers from supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), a condition which causes her heart to beat too fast.

But when they arrive to the Florida resort, she said: 'We are going on the rides and swim in the swimming pool.'

Sasha will be spending her 7th birthday in Disney World on September 13.

News of the surprise trip spread on Facebook and many well wishers wanted to send money to Sasha for her holiday.

But Mrs Nutley and her family, who now live in Norwich, would like donations to go towards Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS).

Mrs Nutley said: 'We feel that we would rather give back to a charity that helps save lives.

'The work they do is phenomenal.'
