Sophies show

A dog show in aid of Sophie Munro who suffers from the rare Angleman syndrome, is being held this month at the YMCA in St Paul’s Road. Ann Adams of Hassan Pet Supplies organises the show each year to raise funds for her grand-daughter who was seven years old yesterday. “Angleman syndrome is a rare genetic disorder; about one in 25,000 children are born with it,” said Ann. Sophie now has a wheelchair and attends Glyne Gap special needs school.
  “The money we raise helps buy equipment made specially for her needs,” said Ann. The ‘Companion Dog Show’ is being held on Sun 15th October. Doors open at noon. Entry is £3 plus £1 for each dog entered in each class. “Last year we had about 180 entrants.”
  This year at school, Sophie walked one mile with her walking frame for Sports Relief and raised over £100. “She was last in but the others were in wheelchairs. She also won an award for the best achiever of her year in her class. To her parents and us, her grandparents, we are so proud to have such a lovely grand-daughter who never gives up,” said Ann.
