AN APPEAL has been made to help find a young girl’s missing leg splint.
The splint belongs to six-year-old Daisy Pritchard of Ruabon and she needs it to help her get out and about.
Daisy survived a stroke when she was just 21 months old.
However, she now has a right leg which is slightly shorter than her left and also a weakness in her right ankle.
Daisy is a pupil at Ruabon’s Ysgol Maes Y Llan and during recent snowy weather she went to school wearing boots.
Her splint and shoes were packed in a bag which she hung up on her coat peg in the cloakroom.
But she left school without the bag and it has gone missing.
Daisy’s mother Eileen, of Albert Grove, Ruabon, said it will cost her £113 for a new splint and £60 for shoes.
“I’ve been in contact with the school, but unfortunately the bag has disappeared,” she said.
“I think someone must have picked it up by mistake. We would very much appreciate it if whoever has the splint and shoes lets us have them back.
“Daisy is having trouble getting around without the splint.”
Eileen said a new splint would not be ready for two weeks.
“Fortunately, Daisy’s cast was taken recently and they still have that or it would have cost us even more than £113 to buy a replacement,” she added.
“The bag was made of plastic, it is green and white in colour with a picture of flowers on it.”
