Baby Sophie warms ASDA shoppers
11:00am Wednesday 10th October 2012 in News
SHOPPERS had their hearts stolen by baby Sophie Hooper as she helped her dad with fundraising.
Sophie, who has a life-limiting form of dwarfism, was taken along to ASDA by her dad, Craig.
They were at a Think Amy stall run by Jane Hofmeister in memory of her daughter, Amy, who was killed by a speeding motorist as she cycled along Blackbrook Way in June last year.
They sold merchandise encouraging drivers to slow down, with the profits going to buy a blanket that will enable Sophie to control her temperature better.
Cash was also raised for other children with rhizomelic chondrodysplasia, a condition which only about 50 children in the whole world have.
Craig said: “I’m grateful to Jane for the hard work and support she put in.”
