The parents of a six-year-old who is wheelchair bound and unable to communicate are holding a gala night to raise funds for the chYps children’s hospice.

Baillie Trailor was born 29 weeks premature and spent the first 16 months of his life in hospital and has since been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, visual and hearing impairment, lung disease and development delay.

His mother Sarah, 37, from Vigo, said: “His condition is life-limiting and we don’t know what the future holds. chYps provide wonderful care and support to families like ours. I feel some reassurance that if Baillie’s life did take a turn for the worse chYps will be there to support us.

“Baillie is an incredible little boy - we are dearly trying to improve his quality of life, given the restrictions that his disabilities impose.”

Funds raised on the night will also go toward Baillie’s ongoing care at home including a specialist sensory floor mat and mirror.

A Night To Remember takes place at Princes Park, Dartford on February 16 and tickets (£95) include food, champagne and entertainment.
