A Falmouth teenager is a step closer to her ambition of visiting a New York convention for scoliosis sufferers after a successful tabletop sale.

Emi Hopkins, 13, organised the sale at the Tolmen Centre in Constantine, to help fund her trip to New York as part of her efforts to set up the UK’s first Curvy Girls support group.

As well as the stalls, there were cakes and coffee, a tombola including prizes of a swim and sauna package from St Michael’s Hotel and tickets for Miracle Theatre, and live busking from two of Emi’s school friends.

Emi also gave a talk about living with scoliosis, a condition which causes her spine to bend and can be painful and debilitating.

Rachel Hopkins, Emi’s mother, said: “It went really well, we made about £220, and lots of people came.

“Everyone had a good time, it was great. Quite tiring, but worth it.”
