Mia Ferreira, 5, needs £50,000 for pioneering specialist treatment

The family of a disabled girl from Kilburn striving to raise £50,000 to help her walk for the first time will be hosting a sing-a-long fundraising extravaganza in Wembley tomorrow.

Five-year-old Mia Ferreira has a severe case of cerebral palsy and is unable to walk.

However, for the last eight months her family have been holding various fundraising events to raise the cash to fly her to America to receive specialist treatment and learn how to walk.

The family will be hosting a Karaoke night at The Blue Check Bar and Restaurant in Empire Way, Wembley, on Saturday from 8pm.

Tickets are £5 which entitles guests to entry, a buffet and also enters them into a prize draw.

All proceeds go to Mia’s Missouri Mission, for more information about the cause go to http://www.justgiving.com/Mias-Missouri-Mission/
