Mother sets out her stall for Violet

A HALIFAX mum who is fund-raising for a charity that is helping her daughter with a rare eye condition collected hundreds of pounds by holding a raffle.

Natasha Fletcher’s little girl Violet has aniridia – a rare eye condition which affects one in every 100,000 babies.

It means part or all of her iris is missing. The mum from Boothtown is collecting for the Aniridia Network, a support group and charity for the rare genetic condition, and has so far raised over £700.

In her latest fund-raising move, she raffled Easter hampers, collecting £354.

She thanked everyone who had supported the event and helped sell tickets. She is now holding a “name the teddy” competition, with a giant teddy as a prize. Tickets are £1 each.
