Despite having a rare muscle-wasting disease, which leaves her unable to walk, control her head or lift her arms, Tilly had raised £360,000 to buy state-of-the-art wheelchairs for other children. And since receiving her award from Sir Bruce Forsyth, her fundraising total has topped a remarkable £5 million.
