A disabled three-year-old whose mobility pram was stolen from outside his home is recovering after an operation at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

Archie Sullivan, whose replacement buggy was quickly funded by anonymous donations after the Gazette reported the theft, was born with his bowels on the outside of his body so cannot walk for long distances. His condition also means he suffers from hernias, and needs operations.

Mum Becki-Jo said: “Archie had his op on Monday – he is such a brave boy and nothing seems to faze him. All went well, and he has just been sleeping off the anaesthetic.”

Charity Family Fund has also been in touch with the family to offer help with purchasing a new specialist bed for Archie since the Gazette’s report.
