A Northamptonshire disability awareness campaigner says she is 'completely overwhelmed and grateful' after reaching her crowd funding target for a new wheelchair in just 26 days.

Sarah Alexander from Wollaston suffers from a genetic condition which causes her limbs to dislocate every day.

The 29 year says the new £5,000 pound chair will give her more freedom.

Sarah has now ordered her wheelchair and is expecting to have it delivered later this month.

"I'm completely overwhelmed and so grateful. I received £1000 donation the night my campaign aired and cried happy tears. I honestly thought it would take ages to raise the money but it was only 26 days. Thank you to everyone that donated."
