Maldon: Izzy's operation fund depleted by flop concert
10:00am Wednesday 29th August 2012 in News
A flop concert has lost £15,000 from a school girl’s fund for a life changing operation.
The Music and Miracles show, featuring X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent stars, was held for cerebral palsy sufferer, Izzy Kuta.
It hoped to raise money to pay for a procedure that would allow the five-year-old to walk like other children.
Her family have until November to raise £33,000 for the selective dorsal rhizotomy operation at Frenchay Hospital, Bristol, and intensive aftercare.
But the loss made by Music and Miracles has left just £10,000 in the account.
