AN inspirational youngster and her best friend are on a mission to help poorly children.

Lucy Stewart was born with the tubes in her throat wrongly connected, meaning her food travelled into her lungs.

The nine-year-old from Elgin has undergone countless operations since.

However, the live-wire Bishopmill pupil never stays feeling sorry for herself for long.

Her many exploits have already raised thousands of pounds for ARCHIE Foundation.

Now she's got not one, but two grand plans.

First off, she's holding Lucy's Family Fun Day at Elgin Town Hall on Saturday, September 28, from 1pm-3pm.

Several superheroes will be making guest appearances, and there will be raffles and food galore, plus two bouncy castles.

Then, from 7pm on October 11, Lucy and her best pal and classmate Lilly Allen will be performing at the Aberdeen Beach Ballroom.

The pair will be dancing a Cha Cha routine as part of Strictly Archie ballroom contest.

Lucy said: "People should come to both because they will be a lot of fun. If any of their family gets ill they will be well looked after thanks to ARCHIE."
