Sheringham club boosts Lauren's light fund

Sick baby Lauren Taylor should be getting her special light and sensory room soon, after a successful fund-raiser in her home town.

Sick baby Lauren Taylor should be getting her special light and sensory room soon, after a successful fund-raiser in her home town.

The year-old tot suffers from a rare disorder which has left her blind, partially deaf, with a hole in the heart, kidney problems, extra toes and fingers, needs extra oxygen to breathe and has to be fed by tube.

Her parents, Emma and Glen, who were told Lauren was likely to die before she was six months, are keen to make her life as good as possible for as long as it lasts - and including providing a sensory stimulation room at their Sheringham home.

A fund-raising event at the town's Tyneside Club at the weekend raised nearly �3,000 pushing the total from the generous members to �3,700 - and enough to buy the bubble tube, lights, bean bag and special pushchair needed to boost Lauren's quality of life.
