A young girl with an incurable condition is hoping to raise enough money to fulfill an item on her bucket list.

Ella Barden, seven, was born with cockayne syndrome, an incurable premature ageing condition that affects two in one million babies and gives them a life expectancy of just 12.

Ella, who attends Southview School, Conrad Road, Witham, has set up a bucket list of things she wants to do, with one thing being to swim with dolphins.

So far Ella has raised £80 through a sponsored walk.

Ella is setting off from her house in Speedwell Close at 9am on May 10.
