VIDEO: Generous Gold Coasters raise over $20K to buy 6yo Lilly Murphy a new wheelchair

Six-year-old Lilly Murphy is set to get a brand new wheelchair thanks to the generosity of Gold Coasters.

Last night, more than 250 people gathered at the Royal Queensland Art Society in Broadbeach to attend a fundraiser for the little girl put on by 1029 Hot Tomato’s Flan & Emily Jade.

At the event the inspiring Lilly, who is battling a rare joint, muscle and bone disorder called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita, auctioned off 20 artworks she painted with her mouth.


The auction was a huge success, with over $21,875.20 raised – more than enough to buy Lilly a new power wheelchair which will give her some more independence.
