Brave Amy set to run a mile to boost goat sanctuary and hospitals
Friday 13th April 2018
A BRAVE primary school girl is raising money for a local goat sanctuary when she runs the Brighton mini-mile.
Amy Saunders suffers from short-gut syndrome, which means that she has a Hickman line – a catheter which gives her intravenous nutrient top-ups four nights a week.
It is the second time that the 11-year-old, from Langley and a pupil at Kingswood Primary School, has run the mile.
And this year she will be raising funds for Buttercups Goat Sanctuary in Boughton Monchelsea, where she has adopted Teddy.
As well as the sanctuary, she is also raising money to buy DVD players for youngsters at Pembury Hospital and education equipment for the school within the Royal London Hospital – two hospitals where she has treatment.
Her mum Sam said: “We are very proud of Amy. She just wants to demonstrate that while she might have a Hickman line for her condition it is no barrier to her.”
