Jasmine came 17 place out of 170 children who took part in the Brighton Mini Mile on 5 April. She raised over raised over £150.

She said: “I would like to say a big thank you to all the people who sponsored me, this makes a lot of other children happy.”

Jasmine chose the charity by researching on the internet and watching a video about The Children’s Trust.

She said: “On the video it explained that some children find it difficult to do things when they have a brain injury but when they go to The Children’s Trust they come along quite well and the video showed one little boy who was able to kick a ball after a long time not being able to.”
