It was not thought that Harmonie-Rose Allen would survive the killer bug when she was struck down in September 2015 at the age of nine months. She ended up losing both her arms and legs, but is now able to walk through the use of prosthetic legs. So her family took her to Glice Rink at Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park in Keynsham, Somerset, to enjoy some skating.

Doctors said that she might have struggled on the ice, but she had some specially made liners on that were fitted at NHS Briston Centre for Enablement.

Harmonie’s mother Freya said: ‘The liners she is wearing have special padding on the bottom so she doesn’t slip,’ ‘Harmonie doesn’t yet like wearing prosthetics all the time so it’s great to get her upright and straight. ‘When she isn’t wearing the prosthetics the liners help her develop the walking motion and build her muscles up.’

The prosthetics are the first pair her parents have bought privately since doctors removed Harmonie’s arms and legs to save her life when she was less than a year old. When they were fitted Freya said it was ‘just amazing’ to be able to walk her little girl into nursery.

Writing on the Hope 4 Harmonie Facebook page about the skating trip, her parents said: ‘No such word as can’t! ‘Harmonie and her family wish you all a Merry Christmas!! And all the best for 2018.’ More than two years ago the Bath community rallied to raise around £240,000 for Harmonie’s future. Harmonie needs new prosthetic legs every six to nine months and will continue to have simple straight legs until she feels ready to progress to jointed prosthetics with a knee.
