    CASH is rolling in for plucky Amy Garton-Hughes who is making medical history in her battle with Cockayne Syndrome. On Sunday, teenagers from Wallasey Swimming Club splashed out to help the 16-year-old who is baffling doctors with her spirit and determination. Amy's good friend Emma Jones raised over £200 after completing a sponsored swim at Guinea Gap Baths in Seacombe. And money is still coming in from other members of the club with all proceeds to registered charity Amy and Friends. Support continues to mount to fund research into the rare disease and Vauxhall, Unilever and Sony are now on board. Globe readers have also pledged donations to help Amy receive groundbreaking treatment and after just one course of new physiotherapy, she is walking with her back almost straight. Her hearing has gone from moderate loss to mild and mum Jayne says her well-being and contentment is much improved. The very first CS Christmas party to bring together UK families will take place this weekend. To donate, send your cheques made payable to Amy and Friends, c/o Wirral Globe, Haymarket Court, Hinson Street, Birkenhead, CH41 5BX.
