A three-year-old with a spinal condition has left her parents speechless after taking her first independent steps in line with her walking frame fundraiser.

Daisy Briggs, from Sutton, wore a different colour of the rainbow each day on her daily walking frame fundraiser, which has raised more than £16,000 for the NHS.

Daisy's mother, Rea Briggs, 34, was told the chances of Daisy walking were near to impossible, due to her spinal condition, Spina Bifida.

Three years later, Daisy has done the impossible and has coincidentally walked unaided whilst reaching a milestone in her fundraiser.

Speaking to Sutton Guardian, Daisy's mother, Rea Briggs said: "I was sitting in the front room when I looked up and saw Daisy walking without her frame, I shouted oh my God!

"The next morning we took her to the park and she walked again.

"We are completely over the moon that Daisy has taken her first independent steps.

"It was completely out of the blue and so unexpected.

"We were told her chances of walking were near impossible so it’s a miracle, she’s our miracle that’s for sure.

"Daisy’s worked so hard to get to where she is now and all that hard work is paying off.

"She has the best team behind her including her physio team and preschool staff who are a great support.

"She’s continuing to take steps around the home and is improving daily.

"Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and supported Daisy’s rainbow walk, It means the world to us."

Donations reached £16,159 out of her initial target of £100 at the time of publishing.
