GENEROUS Crystal Palace players have donated thousands of pounds to help a young girl walk unaided. Players including goal-keeper Julian Speroni yesterday (Tuesday) handed a cheque to Scarlett Hewitt, 8, and her Palace fan family. The family, of New Addington, are trying to raise £65,000 for Scarlett to have an operation in the U.S. that will drastically reduce the symptoms of her cerebral palsy. Mrs Hewitt said of the Palace players: "I cannot thank them enough. They have made such a difference." She added: "We went to the club and they invited Scarlett to have some dinner. "Then Jedinak came out and said, 'We have got something for your campaign. It was great." Scarlett was also a mascot at Crystal Palace's match against Manchester City two weeks ago, helping the family raise thousands from match-goers. The campaign has raised more than £30,000 since it was launched in March, mainly through family friends and strangers hosting events and sponsored activities. Mrs Hewitt addded: "It is amazing. I cannot believe it. To think there strangers out there who have taken her into their hearts." To donate, visit https://www.justgiving.com/Scarlettswishtowalk/
