She has been handed a £1,000 donation from the housing firm’s West Wales business to help pay for the sessions.

The money comes as part of their Community Champions scheme which donates up to £64,000 a month to good causes across the UK.

Rebecca Thomas, who applied for the funding for Brooke, said: “We are extremely grateful to Persimmon Homes for this generous donation. It will make a huge difference to her.

“Brooke goes to an amazing physiotherapy centre based in Oxfordshire which does the most incredible work and has helped Brooke to crawl, sit, and walk with aids.

“This kind of physio needs to be regular to enable Brooke to get stronger and stronger so she can do what other children do.

“This type of specialist therapy comes a cost. She is such an inspiration and puts 100 per cent into everything she does and will never give up. Thank you, Persimmon.”

Sharon Bouhali, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Wales, said: “We were touched to hear Brooke’s story and delighted to be able to help cover the cost of some of these vital physiotherapy sessions.

“We wish Brooke all the best for her future and with her goal of being able to walk.”
