Meg's too ill to go trick or treating, so we're going for her

This morning, we met Meg, from Harrogate, the winner of this year's Stray FM Trick or Treat by Proxy competition.

Meg is 9 years old and attends Oatlands Junior School, in Harrogate, and is currently waiting to have a heart valve transplant.

When Stray FM launched our Trick or Treat By Proxy competition we wanted to help a family who, for whatever reason, wouldn't be able to go out on Halloween.

Meg was put forward by her mum and was picked out to appear on this morning's breakfast show with Nick Hancock.

At just 8 months, Meg underwent a major heart op and is now waiting to have a heart valve transplant.

Mum Rebecca Waring explained, "When she first had her surgery they corrected a problem but then created another one.

"Her valve is far too big - you have a vent and it doesn't fit properly so the blood flows back and forth when it shouldn't."


On why she can't go trick or treating tonight, Rebecca said, "She's just got to be careful.

"She can't really run around as much as another child.

"She is a bit small for her age, like a supermodel - very tall but very skinny. She gets very cold and goes a bit blue."

Tonight members of the Stray FM team will get dressed up and go trick or treating near Meg's home around the St. Georges area, off Leeds Road.

We'll be hand delivering all the sweets to her door.
