A YOUNG girl from Barrow who was diagnosed with cancer is set to have her bedroom transformed into the den of her dreams after labourers came forward to help an interior designer complete the job following a plea published by the Evening Mail.

Ten-year-old Aimee Robinson, from Barrow, who was told she had acute leukaemia in January earlier this year, is desperate for her child-like bedroom to be redesigned into a more grown-up pad.

The St James' CE Junior School pupil wants a bunk bed with a desk for studying underneath as well as a purple and pink colour scheme and a feature wall with a 3D mural on it.

The renovation will be funded by the Make A Wish foundation who have granted Aimee £2,750 to complete the refurbishment.

Interior designer and house doctor Anne Sowerby was assigned the task of making Aimee's dreams become a reality and the pair went through mood boards to finalise the design.

However, the 49-year-old needed painters, decorators and joiners to take part in the DIY SOS-style makeover and help her finish the job.

After coming to the Evening Mail for support, Mrs Sowerby has now recruited a number of labourers to help her finish the job with the work set to start on October 3.

Mrs Sowerby said: "It is a real relief because I didn't think I was going to get anyone to help me out. I rang up quite a few people but seemed to be going round in circles so I'm glad it has finally been sorted.

"In the end I got many more offers than I actually needed which was overwhelming but I want to thank everybody who got in touch for their support.

"Now that I've got my team sorted and arranged everyone's fees I have emailed my budget request to the Make A Wish foundation and as soon as I get the OK from them I can start to order the materials.

"I couldn't have done this job on my own. This job in particular will be quite hard work because it needs totally redecorating whereas others have involved just repainting the walls."

Chris Shepherd, 30, who owns CJS Painting and Decorating in Askam, has offered to do the painting and decorating for Aimee's bedroom.

He said: "I know how much this will mean to them and I am more than happy to help out. Aimee's face will be a picture when it is finished.

"There is a lot of hard work to be done in the meantime but I think we have got enough hands on deck to get it all sorted."
