The mum of a toddler battling a rare eye disease that could leave her blind is appealing for help to transform her garden into a sensory haven.

Nadine Clair’s daughter Violet, who is just 14 months old, was recently diagnosed with Coats’ disease, a progressive illness that has already taken the sight in one eye.

The Dagenham mum-of-three has entered a competition to win a garden makeover - but is in need of votes to make it happen.

Nadine said: “My daughter has difficulty around the house and garden with depth perception, and she loses her step regularly due to the sight loss. I would love a safe haven garden for Violet to play safe and have lots of sensory items to enjoy.
