A fundraising event has been organised for a Sutton woman who lost her legs, one of her arms and her fingers after she was struck down with a serious infection.

Nicola Daniels, who works at Ashfield District Council, suffered from meningitis and septicaemia last year and her colleagues and other members of the community have rallied to raise money for her.

She is hoping to buy a ‘bionic hand’ which will allow her to carry out tasks as she did before - but these can cost up to £50,000.

Now, as part of the fundraising drive, an event has been organised at Teversal Scout Hut on Saturday from 1pm until 4pm.

There will be cream teas, cakes and stalls including a plant stall.

Other events that have been organised include a concert at Kirkby’s Festival Hall last month.

The event featured the district council’s workplace choir which was set up by staff to raise money for Nicola.
