Parents step in and throw Christmas party for children.

A GROUP for parents of disabled children stepped in to throw a Christmas party for their kids - with a little help from their friends.

Kerrie Morrison, whose four children attend the Parents for Change group, organised the party after finding out that Middlesbrough Council was not putting on the regular event.

The group helps out disabled and disadvantaged children across Middlesbrough.

Kerrie, from Netherfields, got local businesses involved who donated presents, decorations and time - with local charity the Boro Walkers pitching in with PS1,000 to buy sweets and a buffet.

The Priory Social Club in Middlesbrough allowed the group to host the party free of charge on Wednesday - which went down a storm with the 300 people who wenr along.

Kerrie said: "When we found out that the annual party wasn't going to be on, we moved in at short notice.

"It was an absolutely fantastic day and I'd like to say thank you to everyone who helped make it possible."
