MORE pledges and donations have rolled in from generous readers of The News in support of disabled boy Aston Muff who had his walking frame stolen.

Susan Muff, the youngsters mum, said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the support since the tragic story of the theft was published in our paper.

Aston, six, who suffers from cerebral palsy, had his walker stolen from his home in Harleston Road, Wymering on Friday, August 12.

It will cost £150 to replace the walking frame, but donations have so far exceeded £1,000 - and Mrs Muff has requested that all surplus money is split between the Child Development Centre in Milton and disabled charity Enable Ability based in Copnor.
