The Abercorn Primary pupil, Elsa McBurney was taken to A&E last month complaining of a sore back and the family were left devastated when they were told she has cancer of the spine.

A go-fundme page was set up last week and the total has passed £14,000 with nearly 500 donations.

A series of fundraising events have been organised to help raise money for this very important cause.

Cline Road Community and Friends are holding a Coffee Morning along with activities for the kids in Banbridge Orange Hall on Saturday 11th March from 9am to 12.30.

This was to be originally held in Cline Road Community House though due to the vast numbers of people looking to attend the event had to be switched to a bigger venue to accomodate.

A Fundraiser for #TeamElsa with live music and disco is being held on Saturday, April 7.

There will be a raffle of amazing prizes on the night and this is only £10 per ticket but they are selling fast.

The girls of M&co in Banbridge held a coffee morning in store last Saturday, which was a success.

The money raised will go towards the vast expenditure that will be needed to turn Elsa’s house into a sterile environment following treatments and the high possibility of a trip to England for surgery.

On the fund-raising page, they posted: “The support so far has been overwhelming! Let’s keep it going and smash this for the wee lady.

“Thanks everyone who has donated so far”
