A GORNAL mum who makes beautiful bonnets to raise funds for her son's rare condition has raised an impressive £690 for the Williams Syndrome Foundation.

The money will be donated to foundation in tribute to her son eight-year-old son Matthew who lives with the condition, which is a rare congenital disorder caused by a chromosome abnormality.

The condition occurs randomly and affects around one in 18,000 people in the UK.

Since January, Kellie has handcrafted 443 bonnets in total, which has included 4873 crepe paper flowers, 886 butterflies, 2658 coloured eggs and 11,075 little chicks.

The hardworking mum said 'never in all her dreams' did she think her bonnets would be so popular, with orders coming in from as far afield as Scotland and Cornwall.

Her bonnets included 140 different designs, and she revealed that this year's most popular design was Spiderman with 44 requests, followed by butterflies, bunnies and Fortnite.

She paid tribute to Matthew and her family for their support in the four-month long bonnet-making mission.

Writing on her Facebook page, Kel's Easter Bonnets, Kellie wrote: "I would like to thank everyone who has purchased a bonnet, donated extra on top of their bonnet, shared my page or recommended me, your support means so much.

"I will be spending the next few weeks with my family catching up on the time I missed with them the last month and I look forward to next January when I will relaunch again and wonder if I will reach 500 orders, I can dream."
