Ella's story

Ella is 12 years old and loves clothes and fashion. She was born with Spina Bifida, a condition where the spine does not develop properly.

She also has Hydrocephalus, or water on the brain. Thanks to your donations to BBC Children in Need, Ella can go to creative workshops at Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland, in Aberdeenshire where she can meet new friends, have fun and share her love of fashion. They call her “The Bling Queen”.  

Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland provides a one-to-one service and group activities, helping young people who have spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and their siblings to access social and leisure activities, make friends, be more confident and independent.
