Demi-Louise met up with Millie and her parents Dean and Lynsey at the Kincardine Way last week to hand over a cheque for £2170.

Millie was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma last year and, following extensive treatment, is now in remission.

However, her family are still collecting as much money as they can so they can allow her to access a trial drug which is only available in America and could prevent the disease returning.
