A CHRISTMAS dance will be held to raise money for a child with an incapacitating mystery illness.

Four-year-old Megan Roper, from Swanfield in Long Melford, has been in and out of hospital all her life after suffering up to 40 seizures a day.

The youngster has difficulty walking and talking and although she has undergone thorough tests, doctors have been unable to tell her parents Sarah and Carl what is causing the problems.

They have launched an appeal to raise £20,000 to convert their home to suit Megan’s needs, and are planning a Christmas event at the Royal British Legion Social Club in Cordell Road, on December 9, to bolster funds.

Tickets for the dance, which will run from 8pm to 11.45pm, cost £5 and can be bought by contacting 01787 375604.
