A PEEBLES church has raised more than £1,000 to help treat a baby girl.

St Andrews Leckie Church hosted a coffee morning to raise funds for 18-month-old Scarlett Moore.

If follows previous coverage in the Peeblesshire News of mum Laura Moore making an emotional plea to help Scarlett, who has Cerebral Palsy and Global Developmental Delay.

After the diagnosis at the Borders General Hospital in November 2016, Laura and her husband Chris discovered ABR, a unique, rehabilitative, home-based therapy, for children with CP.

The family started treatment in March, but to enable Scarlett to have three years of therapy – which will help her to hold her head, sit up and digest food properly – they need to raise £15,000.

Laura said: “The coffee morning at St Andrews Leckie raised £1,257. We can’t believe they raised so much and are overwhelmed by the local support she is getting.

“We’d also like to thank the women’s group from the church who organised everything, we appreciate everything they have done for Scarlett.”

A total of £6,747 has been raised via the JustGiving page so far. To donate, visit Scarlett’s page at: www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/just4children/scarlettsnextsteps
