KIND company bosses handed over £400 which will help to pay for vital treatment for town youngster Talia Foster.

As reported in the Mail, the adorable five-year-old who has spent her early years battling a number of conditions, started full-time school at Springwell last week.

And in another boost for Talia and her family, the youngster was handed £400 by the generous managers at Teesside-wide clothes recycling firm We Pay Cycle.

Talia’s grateful mum Clair, 39, said: “It’s been so long since we launched the fundraising campaign to help pay for Talia’s treatment but we still get people getting in touch with us saying they want to support Talia and donate money.

“The support has been absolutely amazing and we are so, so grateful.”

The fundraising campaign to support Talia was launched when doctors diagnosed her with a string of conditions which caused her to have hundreds of seizures every single day.

She has since received specialist treatment at various physiotherapy and specialist centres to help build her strength.

And later this year Talia and her parents Clair and Brendan, 37, will visit Brainwaves Centre, in Warrington, a specialist facility treating youngsters with Cerebral Palsy and other conditions.

Clair, who is also a mum of Callum, 18, and Gabrielle, nine, added: “The treatment Talia has had over the years has made her so much stronger and helped her on leaps and bounds and that has all been possible thanks to the donations we have had off people and businesses.”

Generous residents have raised more than £35,000 to support Talia.

As well as paying for treatment and physio, the money also funded a sensory bedroom for the youngster which is designed to stimulate Talia’s brain.
