Natalie's the coolest kid in town with her 'whizzy' wheelchair
NATALIE Middlecote is the coolest kid in town.
The seven-year-old has muscular dystrophy but her adjustable-height "whizzy" wheelchair gets her out and about.
Mum Sandra says her daughter is incredibly independent despite suffering from the muscle-wasting disease.
She is just one of a group of sufferers who are coming together on December 6 for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's Spirit of Christmas candlelit family service at Gloucester Cathedral.

The event, from 7.30pm, is a popular night of choral music and is proudly backed annually by The Citizen.
Mrs Middlecote, from Ross-on-Wye, said: "Natalie is completely independent. We moved into a bungalow and she whizzes around.
"She can take herself to her bedroom or into the garden without a problem. Having the wheelchair has been a lifeline to her."
The family is hoping others will join them at the fundraiser.
Tickets are £10 for adults and £5 for children.
Dame Janet Trotter, Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, said: "This event is all about bringing the community together as one family. It's a wonderful occasion."
