Kaylin Banks is suffering from a degenerative condition which means she will soon lose the use of her legs.

After hearing about her battle local landscaper Rob Farrell used social media to get friends, neighbours and professionals to donate supplies and services.

The family say they've been overwhelmed by people's generosity.

Unfortunately her legs are struggling to carry her body now so obviously wheelchair access will be important for us and that was one of the main things is that she could come and enjoy the garden and be able to be outside.

Just the kindness of people to come in and help with this project especially for this little one, it's amazing.
