Amelia,6, hopes to boost Children in Need charity with special Wisbech prom
A SIX year old girl will be stepping out in style to host a VIP prom night in aid of Children in Need.
Amelia Garfoot is persuading friends to stump up �10 a head to turn out in tuxedos and prom dresses for the fund raising event at Wisbech Grammar School.
Her mum, Lisa, said she was delighted and amazed when Amelia came home from school to tell the family she was staging the event.
“We are all very proud of her,” said Lisa, who has stepped in to help her daughter by arranging complimentary hire of a disco, balloons and many of the other trappings needed for a successful prom.
“We have tried to do everything for free to ensure as much possible is raised for Children in Need,” she added.
