Paula Warren said scores of people had offered their help and support to the family ever since her daughter Millly-Anne Hemley had part of her right leg amputated following an attack by the family dog, in December 2012.

The fun day was the first in a line of fundraising activities by the family who hope to raise about £6,000 to buy a new pink sparkly leg for Milly.

Ms Warren said: “The fun day was just amazing. We had loads going on including face painting and three inflatables which were a hit with everyone – I was even dared to go on one to get people to donate!

“The support given to Milly was overwhelming and she was spoilt rotten. She loved it.”

Up to 400 people came along on the day raising a total of £855.

Cakes were donated to the family to sell on the day to raise extra funds.

Ms Warren said: “The day was so good we already have a date set for the next one but next time we will have a live band in the evening as well.”

Ms Warren said a huge thank you to Beverley Martin at the Pike and Eel pub which hosted the day.

She also thanked Daventry District Council which allowed the fun day to go ahead on extra land.
