A CHARITY night has raised more than £5,000 towards a sensory unit in honour of a baby girl who only has months to live.

Four-month-old Madison Murray, of Stockingate, South Kirkby, was born with the rare genetic disorder Spinal Muscular Atrophy - which progressively weakens her muscles.

Madison responded well to the sensory unit at Pontefract Hospital and her mum Laura Kendall, and dad Jason Murray, are hoping to raise £20,000 to open a similar unit in South Kirkby.

Hundreds of people attended the event at the Recreation Club, South Elmsall, last Thursday, where there were tributes bands including Pink, as well as burlesque dancers and raffles. They raised £5,400.

Miss Kendall, 29, said: “It was brilliant, and we raised more than we ever thought we could.”

She said even though Madison wouldn’t be able to benefit from the unit, she wanted other people to be able to.

Miss Kendall thanked everyone for their ongoing support and said it would be a lovely legacy for her daughter to leave behind.
