A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl who was born with cerebral palsy was given a special mobility tricycle to help her exercise.

Gabriella Rolls, from Orpington, has been testing out her new wheels which help improve her posture and more freedom to play with her two-year-old brother Freddie.

Her mother, Efthalia Rolls, said: "As parents of a child with cerebral palsy we work really hard to ensure that Gabriella has as much freedom as we can possibly give her, as well as every opportunity to play alongside her brother and her other friends."

The family received a £1,000 grant from mutual financial services organisation, Foresters Friendly Society.

Foresters Friendly Society's, Chris Morris, said: "We are delighted to have been able to help by providing a grant for the tricycle and hope that its arrival really helps to improve Gabriella's everyday life.
