Tia Hutchinson, 13, from Gorleston first started raising money to fund a seizure alarm for her one-year-old brother Toby when he was diagnosed with epilepsy.

The alarm allowed her parents to sleep at night safe in the knowledge they would be alerted should he have a seizure.

Her Mum, Lisa Hutchinson described the alarm as life-changing.

Her fundraising efforts have included a raffle, sales of her hand-made jewellery from Tia’s Treasures and the setting up of a JustGiving page called Help Tia To Help Others.

She has now set her sights on a new target after her brother’s epileptic seizures have started to change.

Toby is now suffering more seizures at night, therefore, she is hoping to raise enough money to buy him a PulseGuard - a more reliable alarm.

The heart rate monitors are available to hire at £30 a month.
