A Suffolk charity has brought Christmas joy to families with seriously ill children.

Over the Rainbow children’s charity donated a special buggy, costing, £1,200 to help two-year-old Ezra Wyard, from Rendlesham, transport the equipment he needs to breathe properly, after being born prematurely.

His mother Carol, who left her job to become her son’s carer, said: “Despite being born so prematurely Ezra was doing well until he had a serious infection at five days old which resulted in him having bleeds on his lungs.”

She praised Over the Rainbow for giving her son – and the family – freedom to live a more normal life.

Charity founder, Bev Lambert, of Alderton, near Woodbridge, said: “It’s fantastic that we have been able to improve the quality of life not just for Ezra but his whole family.”
