Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

A pop­u­lar Cam­bus­lang busi­ness is host­ing a fundrais­ing event to help a lit­tle girl who suf­fers from a rare con­di­tion.

Elfy Trees, based on John­son Drive, has be­come well known in the area for staff dress­ing as elves as they de­liver Christ­mas trees in the lead up to the big day.

The own­ers have or­gan­ised an event on Tues­day, Novem­ber 28 for Elsie How, 2, who suf­fers from Tri­choth­iodys­tro­phy.

This life-lim­it­ing con­di­tion af­fects Elsie’s sight, hear­ing, de­vel­op­ment and mo­bil­ity. It also makes her hy­per sen­si­tive to UV light.

There is no cure but the funds raised by Elfy Trees will go to­wards re­search and will also en­sure Elsie has what­ever she needs dur­ing her life to make her as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble.

The event will in­clude gifts for sale from Partylite rep Jules Spence as well as raf­fles. It starts at 7.30pm.

The Re­former has pre­vi­ously re­ported on Elsie and her fam­ily. A num­ber of events have al­ready been held to sup­port her.
