Ava-Grace is only seven months old and was born with Down’s syndrome and congenital heart disease which requires frequent hospital visits and the need to be on oxygen 24 hours a day.
Her illness means she needs extensive periods of time in hospital (Cardiff, Newport, Bristol and London) and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, including major surgery.
Additionally, it has required her devoted parents, Ben and Aimee, to travel and remain by her side through it all, whilst having to juggle work and home life in order to continue support her financially. Naturally, they do this selflessly but, as with all new families, money is always a worry.
Both families are doing everything possible and continue to support them through this tough time but imagine if we could play a small part in ensuring Ava-Grace and her family have one less thing to worry about.
For those of you who know or have met Ava-Grace (or Ben and Aimee) you'll understand why this crowdfund has been set up. Her infectious smile is reason enough to make sure she has every opportunity she needs.
As well as this crowdfunding page, Kate Parry and I have also organised "All for Ava-Grace", a fundraising evening on Saturday 15th October 2016 at the Dolman Theatre (Cabaret stage), Kingsway, Newport NP20 1HY. There will be a disco, bingo, auction, raffle, food and a bar. An ideal night for everyone to let their hair down and celebrate one incredible little girl.
Tickets are just £8 and can be purchased from the Dolman Theatre wesbite

Newport Operatic Society is delighted to present the Newport Premier of a new family musical based on Lewis Carrol's Classic Novel "Alice Through the Looking Glass". Devised by the same team who created the version of "A Christmas Carol", which the Society presented in 2013, this show is full of lively and tuneful melodies, colourful characters and an exciting plot which sees Alice battling with the evil Red Queen and her armoury of Magic, including a monster. An evening of great fairy tale entertainment for children aged 5 to 95. A great curtain raiser to this year's Christmas entertainment season at the Dolman theatre.
Bolstered by the TWG's production of Macbeth, and further encouraged by the musical comedy aboard the SS Farndale Avenue, Mrs Recce presents her latest theatrical endeavour - The Mikado! Her version is bounded by the usual constraints on casting and costume but she is ably assisted by the Rev. Reg who, as well as playing several parts, organises an origami competition during the interval - one of the high spots of the evening.
Devotees and newcomers to the Farndale ladies will thoroughly enjoy this fun-filled romp, their most ambitious project to date, but if you hear the hum of a top it will be Gilbert and Sullivan spinning in their graves!

The great Hollywood comic director, Mack Sennett, reminisces about his career from the sound stage of the studios he once dominated . It is 1938, and the days of the silent film are over, effectively ending Sennett's career.
In a series of flashbacks, Sennett relates the glory days of the Keystone Studios from 1911, when he discovered Mabel Normand, star of dozens of his early "two-reelers", through his invention of the Bathing Beauties and Keystone Cops to Mabel's death from a heroin overdose in 1930.
Pride and a naturally hard, aggressive personality prevent Sennett from ever declaring openly the love he feels for Mabel. Although she is his mistress until 1920, Mabel leaves him for the "serious" director W.D. Taylor, who not only values her acting, but also treats her with kindness and consideration as well. However, when Taylor is murdered in Mabel's presence, the ensuing scandal wrecks her career. In an attempt to help her make a clean start, Sennett agrees to make her the star of a romantic drama, Molly, which he goes on to direct. The odium still attached to Mabel's name means, however, that no one will distribute the film.
Not content with this unhappy ending, Sennett plots a final scene in which he and Mabel marry, happily surrounded by a classic custard pie fight performed by the Keystone Cops
