By GILL ALCOCK Go to www. waihekemarket place.co.nz to see a preview of the documentary Charlotte: A Life Without Limbs. A CAMPAIGN to get little meningitis survivor Charlotte Cleverley-Bis- man walking with new sets of prosthetic legs has reached a national audience after help from a family friend in the police force. Glenfield station man- ager Linday Lawn has been part of Charlotte s life since she was little, organising special events for birthday treats. Now she has set her sights higher and, with her police constable part- ner Grant Kenny, is putting together the Baby Charlotte Car Show at the North Shore Events Centre this Sunday. The idea for the event was mooted back in July. Now eight months later, Ms Lawn says 400 classic American cars along with custom classic car painter Steve Levine and 50 gleaming Harley Davidson motorbikes will be at the show with some offering rides up the northern motorway. Also appearing will be representatives from the emergency services -- fire, ambulance, police and coastguard. Along with Ronald McDonald with his magic show, children will be well entertained by Dora the Explorer, Winnie the Pooh and Lollipop the Clown. The fairies from Ivy Cottage will be blowing bubbles and casting spells. Stalls will be selling everything from ice- cream to hot chips, with the central cafe giving 100 percent of profits to Charlotte s fund. The need to raise money comes from the urgency to get Charlotte walking, her father Perry Bisman says. Now seven years old, the Waiheke Primary School pupil is getting too heavy for Mr Bisman and Charlotte s mother Pam Cleverley to carry. Mr Bisman says she has spent so much time in a sitting position she will need lots of physio- therapy to straighten herself sufficiently to walk. She may need an operation to release her leg muscles. Currently she has only been offered basic fibreglass legs which she finds cumbersome and uncomfortable. She only manages a few minutes in them before she is sore and bruised, Mr Bisman says. We want her to have a go. If she doesn t have a go and start walking now, she ll be in her chair for the rest of her life. Ideally her parents would like Charlotte to have the sort of pros- thetic legs available in the United States but with new legs needed at regular intervals as she grows, cost is a big hurdle. With the Baby Char- lotte Car Show now at- tracting national cover- age, Ms Lawn and Mr Kenny are keen to raise as much as possible so Charlotte and her parents can travel to the US for whatever treat- ment she may need. Waiheke residents wishing to go to the Baby Charlotte Car Show should catch the North- ern Express bus from outside Britomart and get off at Smales Farm from where it is a short walk to the events cen- tre.
