Sidmouth's mini superheroes are being called to action to help raise money for a Sidbury family.

Amelia-Rose Smith, 10, of Furzehill, suffers from Batten’s Disease, a life-limiting illness.

After Zoe Campbell, the owner of Phaze Photography, met Amelia and her family during a photoshoot, she decided to organise a photo day to raise money for Batten’s Disease Family Association (BDFA)

Zoe said: “They are such a lovely family and it really touched me. She [Amelia] just smiles all the time.”

The studio will be open from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, June 21.

The date also ties in with the condition’s awareness month.

Children of all ages are encouraged to dress up as superheroes.

Amelia’s mother, Bev Roberts said: “I am absolutely overwhelmed. It’s brings a huge lump in my throat that Amelia has touched the hearts everywhere she goes.

“Zoe is an amazing photographer so I’m 110 per cent sure she will do well for BDFA which really is a worthy cause.

“We need that cure and with everyone’s help research can be done.”
