Schoolgirl smiling her way to success

Not many children get to model for a fashion label when they are just seven, but Holly Greenhow has achieved just that.

The schoolgirl from Hemingford Grey in Cambridgeshire is currently featuring in Mini-Boden's online catalogue.

Holly has cerebral palsy and as her mother says the photo shoot was all about demonstrating that having a disability shouldn't hold you back.

Schoolgirl Holly Greenhow, like many of the other seven year olds in her class, loves to dress up in nice clothes.

She is also the only child at Hartford Junior School in Cambridgeshire, to suffer from a physical disability.

Her mother Fiona was determined that Holly's Athetoid Cerebral Palsy shouldn't hold her back, and has spent two years persevering to get her daughter into a fashion catalogue for her favourite label, Boden.

She told ITV News Anglia: "Not many children with disabilities have the opportunities that other children have. I wanted to show that you don't have to be perfect to be in a magazine or online or in photographs so that was my desire to push forward and get it done for Holly."

Boden auditioned Holly at a model casting - and she is now starring in one of their online campaigns. Boden say Holly was a delight to work with.
