Restoring Wisbech six-year-old's faith in Father Christmas by fundraising for a new hand

Friends of a Wisbech little girl are working hard to restore her faith in Father Christmas by raising £11,000 to go towards the costs of a bionic hand.

Six-year-old Hope Weston is unable to tie her own shoe laces, make toast or play with a skipping rope like other youngsters as she was born without a left hand.

Hope has been asking Father Christmas...
