Fiona Mactaggart with Jessica Starns

A campaign launched by a Burnham 23-year-old to help people who suffer from dyspraxia has been backed by Slough MP, Fiona Mactaggart.

Jessica Starns was born with the condition which effects co-ordination and makes simple tasks like wrapping a present much harder.

She has now created a booklet, that comes with a DVD of a unique animated short film, to explain dyspraxia and help others with the impairment to set up support groups in their area.

On Friday, Jessica was invited to meet Miss Mactaggart who congratulated her on her achievements.

She said: "Jessica shows how, with a bit of backing, someone with a disability can rise above it."

Jessica is supported by charity Fixers, which inspires young people to take action on a subject they feels strongly about.

"I am really pleased to have had so much interest in my booklet and it was wonderful that Fiona recognised my work," she said.
