Beckhams' good deed for little Lucy.

David Beckham and wife Victoria were last night praised by the mother of a disabled five-year-old girl after footing the bill for a pounds 2,500 wheelchair.

Heather Allinson, aged 40, of Rockland St Mary, Norfolk, said a friend wrote to Beckham asking for an autograph to be auctioned to raise money for the chair for her daughter Lucy, who has cerebral palsy.

Instead the family was contacted by Mrs Beckham's mother, Jackie Adams, who said the couple would bedelighted to foot the bill. "I just want to say thank you. This is really nice of them," Heather said.

"We'd only asked if he would autograph something we could raffle.

"We never dreamed they'd offer to pay. They sent a cheque through Victoria's mother and Lucy now has her wheelchair. I can't thank them enough. You hear so many negative things about them. I just wanted people to know what they had done
