A LITTLE girl's Disney dream has been given a boost after ambulance and hospital workers took part in a charity match.
Eight-year-old Charlie Hall has Rett syndrome and is facing a major operation later this year.
A group of mums dubbed - Charlie's Angels - are trying to raise cash to send the WGC youngster who attends Lakeside Primary School to Disneyland Paris.
After the operation Charlie will be unable to go on any rides, so this really a race against time.
