A BRADFORD mum on a mission to raise awareness about her son's muscle-weakening condition has raised more than £200 for charity.

Mum Heather Lewins, has been supporting Muscular Dystrophy UK in a bid to research treatments and possible cures for her son's condition and many other types of wasting conditions.

Six-year-old Daniel Lewins was first diagnosed with a collagen related congenital muscular dystrophy, also known as Ullrich, back in 2017.

There is currently no cure for the condition but there are ways of helping to alleviate the effects.

Heather, an optician at Specsavers Shipley, was backed by the team with a bake sale and an in-store tombola.

Heather says: "The charity has helped Daniel and our family since his diagnosis.

"I would like to say a huge thank you to all the customers who have donated."

All funds will go to Muscular Dystrophy UK which has helped families since 1959.
