Thighs The Limit

by | 9th, December 2003

‘HUMBUGS all round to the staff at Peterborough’s Orton Centre where a disabled 12-year-old girl has been told she can’t bring her wheelchair into Santa’s Grotto in case it damages the floor.

”And get that spotty kid out of my grotto as well”

Young Danielle Axam can either be carried into Santa’s den or find an evangelist to cast out the evil spirit that lives within her and walk.

It’s a pretty fair deal, but it doesn’t stop Danielle’s mum, telling the Telegraph how she couldn’t believe it and that all disabled children should have the same rights as their able-bodied kin.

That’s all well and good but, if Mrs Axam would like to cast her eyes at the rest of the line outside Santa’s Grotto, she might begin to feel less sorry for her daughter and more fearful for dear old Claus and his helpers.
