Camelford's Abi Meets Santa as She Raises Funds for Trip to America for Operation

By Cornish Guardian

A disabled Camelford teenager, whose family are fundraising to send her on a life-changing trip to America, has been given an early Christmas gift.

Abi Crowther, 13, suffered brain damage at birth, but her mother has learnt that many children have improved and been able to walk after having an operation in America which costs £55,000.

Abi arrived at Trevathan to be greeted by Olaf from Frozen and an elf – Delabole fire station managerMark Saltern. Elf Mark presented Abi with her own Santa ticket and escorted her through to the Winter Wonderland which leads to Santa’s Grotto, passing several elves on the way.

After Abi made her way through the wonderland she was greeted by Santa sitting in his grotto.
