Halle Wilson went up Blencathra in the Lake District with her family on Sunday (22 July).

Her schoolfriend Tillie was mauled by a cross-breed dog last week and since then her friend Halle wanted to do something to help.

After sharing her story with Blog Preston, Halle has raised more than £2,000 which will be put towards four-year-old Tillie’s toys and fun things to do this summer as she continues her recovery.

Halle’s mum Carly Wilson said: “It was a real tough hike.

“The kids didn’t think they would make it to the top and coming back down was worse. All have worse legs and feet.”

A fundraising walk was also held in Moor Park during the weekend and Tillie was able to be released briefly from hospital to go and see the walk.

Carly said: “Tillie is getting there slowly.

“She was able to go and watch the other fundraisers walk in Moor Park.”

The dog attack took place in Westfield Drive, off Watling Street Road, around 4.15pm on Sunday 15 July.

Preston Police arrested a 40-year-old woman on suspicion of having a dog dangerously out of control. She has now been released under investigation.

How you can donate

Carly has set up a fundraising page for Halle’s efforts via Justgiving and donations can be made there.
