Back on her Feet Thanks to Lottery Winners' Generosity

A young girl with cerebral palsy is back on her feet thanks to the generosity of Scottish lottery winners Chris and Colin Weir.

Four-year-old Skye Swinton suffers from spastic diplegic cerebral palsy and has been confined to a wheelchair for most of her life. When Skye's mother, Ruth, wrote to the Weirs, asking for help, she was stunned when they rang her and offered to dip into their EuroMillions nest egg and pay for Skye to have revolutionary spine surgery.

Skye took her first unaided steps on Christmas Day. "Seeing her walking with a smile on her face is the most amazing Christmas present," Ruth said.
