After a team of firefighters from Royston and others from North Herts raised thousands by climbing the height of Everest on a ladder to help a young girl with dyskinetic cerebral palsy walk, a cheque has been presented to her family.

Poppy Cundy, aged six, and her parents Rob and Zoe were invited down to Royston Fire Station to receive the cheque for almost £3,000.

Poppy is unable to do all the little things that many people take for granted, like feed yourself, get dressed, or just get up on your own.
