People are being encouraged to wear their Christmas jumpers to raise funds for the Laila Milly Foundation.

The charity is asking local residents and businesses to pay £1 to don their festive outfits on any Friday in December.

The foundation was set up by Steve and Maya McCormack after their daughter Laila Milly was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition. She died the day before her first birthday but the couple continued with their plans to open a day nursery - on Kirkby Road, Hemsworth - for children with serious and complex illnesses.

The foundation now has two new email addresses and a newly designed website at www.lailamillyfoundation.org.uk. Email enquiries@lailamillyfoundation.org.uk for details about visiting the centre and events. Or email fundraising@lailamillyfoundation.org.uk to support the charity and make a donation.
