Have your say

I would like to write on behalf of sick children such as Niamh Curry and Zac Knighton-Smith.

Why can’t the Government set up a fund for these seriously ill children?

Instead of individuals winning obscene amounts of money on the lottery, couldn’t a percentage of these winnings be put into a fund for the children for when it is needed?

There are such a lot of sick children needing specialist treatment now, and no-one should be denied treatment through lack of money.

I think it is disgusting, and it isn’t fair that parents should have the added worry of trying to find enormous amounts of money and having to rely on the goodwill of the generous public so that their sick children can have the necessary treatment that they so deserve and are entitled to.

My heart and prayers go out to you all.
