Callum Johnson, aged 12, whose mum works at Humble Bee Farm near Flixton raised funds for Angel Sutton, aged 6, whose had her left foot amputated and is due to have her right one amputated soon, due to a rare genetic condition.

The NHS will fund a basic prosthetic limbs, says Angel's mum Tina, who embarked on a fundraising campaign to buy better prostheses.

Yorkshire Coast Radio weighed in and helped Tina raise almost £30,000. The fundraising continues as Angel needs waterproof activity limbs to enable her to seim, paddle and stand up in the shower.

Callum responded to Angel's plight by making and selling hundreds of loom band bracelets to Humble Bee Farm visitors, thanks to owners John and Julia Warters. To date, Callum has raised £220.
