A CHANCE meeting in the High Street means a Miss Worcestershire contestant shall go to the ball dressed as a Disney princess.

Stepping into a beautiful princess gown, student Laura Morris, aged 17, will transform into Cinderella to help raise money for the HelpGeorgie campaign on Sunday.

The Worcester Sixth Form student agreed to become the Disney princess for the campaign's children's party at Pavilion in the Park after meeting three-year-old Georgie and her mum Clare Gibbs on the High Street.

Having read that Georgie needed to raise £60,000 for a selective dorsal rhizotomy to help her walk unaided, she went to say hello to the pair after spotting them in Worcester city centre.

Miss Morris helped raise money for the campaign at the Victorian Fayre and, with a wave of a magic wand, will now step into the glass slippers of Cinderella for the fundraising party.

"It will be really nice to do. I will get to dress up as Cinderella which I've done before for Acorns Children's Hospice and the James Hopkins Trust in Gloucester.

"It's nice to get the dress out again and I'm really looking forward to doing the party.

"Little girls absolutely love it, especially when I sit down and the dress goes all poofy.

"I do sing Disney songs too and it is lovely because the children all join in and dance along.

"I think cerebral palsy is an absolutely awful condition and Georgie has this amazing chance to have an operation which will help her walk unaided.

"It's a fantastic opportunity and I think she deserves that - all children do."

The children's disco will take place at The Pavilion on Tybridge Street on Sunday from 4pm until 6.30pm. Tickets cost £5 per child.

It will be followed by an adult Christmas party from 7.30pm. Tickets are available from The Pavilion costing £10 prepaid or £15 on the night.
