A Bishop's Stortford girl is featuring in a transport company's campaign to raise thousands of pounds for a children's charity.

Cambridgeshire business Turners Soham Ltd has donated two 13.6-metre trailers to advertising for Tom's Trust, which provides psychological support to children with brain tumours across the UK.

And a picture of 11-year-old Stortford resident Mimi Clarke is on the side of one of the lorries which will raise awareness of the charity and encourage people to donate £10 via text.

Mimi and her family received much-needed support from Tom's Trust when she was first diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2013 at the age of three.

"I was so excited to see myself on the lorry," she said. "I am hoping it will raise lots of money for children like me!"

The two lorries – the other features Tom Whiteley, who died of a brain tumour at the age of nine and whose parents co-founded the charity in 2011 – are set to be seen on Britain's roads for around 10 years thanks to the generosity of Turners managing director Paul Day.
