Thousands join for funds.

THOUSANDS of Coventry and Warwickshire people took part in a fundraising campaign led by a sick city girl.

Little Emily Hemming and her schoolmates at Mount Nod Primary School were decked out in colourful costumes during Birmingham Children's Hospital's fundraising Glad Rag Day on Friday.

The nine-year-old, of Mount Nod, who had a kidney transplant when she was six and now needs another transplant, is the face of the campaign.

Mum Debbie said: "We had a brilliant day. Emily said 'I did not know how many people cared'."

Shops, schools and supermarkets right across Coventry and Warwickshire took part.
