Tilly Rae Rhodes raised money for children’s charities while spending time in hospital during the pandemic.

Members of the Newport Safer Neighbourhood Team, in Shropshire, visited Tilly Rae Rhodes at Lilleshall Primary School on Thursday morning.

Tilly was diagnosed with stage four liver cancer in January 2020 before receiving a transplant.

The force wrote on social media: “Tilly Rae is only the fourth person in the whole world to have undergone such an operation for her conditions, and the only one in the UK.

Pc Lee Thomas, PCSOs Krissy Wills and Merrick Liston, along with Sgt Richard Jones, visited her school, presenting her with a personalised sloth cuddly toy embroidered with her name and her special slogan “We Can Do Anything”.
