More than £760 has been raised for two good causes at a fun day at Oaks Community Primary School in Ipswich on Saturday.
Mum Zoe Petch, 28, organised the event after her daughter Amelia Rose was diagnosed with hydroplastic left heart syndrome before she was born in July last year.
The youngster had to undergo a series of open-heart surgeries, with another operation due to take place within the next two years.
To say thank you to the London Evelina Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House Guy’s & St Thomas’ which Miss Petch, partner Nathan, 23, and son Tommy, six, relied on during Amelia-Rose’s birth, the family held a fun day attracting hundreds of families.
Spider-Man, the Disney Frozen princesses and Peppa Pig were all on hand, as well as performances by the Suffolk School of Dancing, tug-of-war challenges, majorettes, a bouncy castle and barbecue.
Miss Petch said: “I am really pleased with how it went, and it was really nice to hear the feedback from everyone. It’s my way of saying thank you because I will always be in there debt, because if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have my daughter.”
