Crystal Palace’s first team squad have donated thousands of pounds towards helping a young girl walk.

The Eagles squad donated £5,000 towards Scarlett Hewitt who is attempting to raise £65,000 to have a life changing operation in the USA.

Eight-year-old Scarlett was at the training ground yesterday where she met the first team and had photos taken with them.

Previously she has been a special mascot at the club and fans have rallied round to support her cause.
