A fundraiser to send a brave six-year-old girl and her family for a dream zoo trip has raised almost four times the target in just a week.

Donations have poured in to send Sofia Honey Adcock, from Costessey, to Port Lympne safari, near Folkstone.

The youngster was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in February.

The aim was to raise £500, but the target is now on its way to £2,000 which will cover an upgrade to the Tiger Lodge at the safari park and a second day trip for the family.

To say thank you, fundraiser Kristina Hall will walk an additional 26 miles this Friday.
