Proceeds from community fundraising events - including the Daventry Express campaign - has enabled work to start on adapting the home of Jago Worrall.

A number of improvements are being carried out at the family home in Welton to help the two-year-old, who was left with severe brain injuries after an accident last year.

He spent time at Tadworth Court paediatric rehabilitation unit in Surrey before returning to his family in March for home-based treatment.

The work includes a hydrotherapy pool, a separate set of therapies to help in his sensory recovery, a car which has been adapted for a ramp and space for Jago’s wheelchair and preliminary work to move Jago’s bedroom from upstairs to downstairs.

His mother Lyn said: “We have found that Jago is quite stiff and not as relaxed. When he was being looked after at Tadworth and he was having his hydrotherapy, it was making a massive difference.

“It is also something we can do as a family and help Jago get better at the same time.”

She also had a message for all of the people who have donated to the cause so far.

Mrs Worrall said: “It has just been absolutely incredible.

“Without the funds coming in home would have been tricky and stressful having not worked for a year. It has been a life-saver.

“A massive thank you to everybody, your efforts have really made a huge difference.”
