This year’s Ladies’ Pancake Race will raise money for a very special little girl.

The organisers, Rugby Rokeby Lions Club, have decided to support Mia Williams (pictured) and are aiming to raise £1,000 to buy a specialised Safe Chair for Mia.

Nine-year-old Mia was born without eyes, has cerebral palsy and suffers from low muscle tone.

She has to be carried by her parents so this year’s Pancake Race will help buy a specialised Safe Chair for Mia to enable her to sit independently both inside and out in the garden.

The race takes place on February 9 on Sheep Street, Rugby, and fancy dress is encouraged.

To register, call Lion Doug Hutchinson on 02476 540449, or Lion Terry Byrne on 01788 576011, or Lion Graham Yates 01788 521158.
