RAINBOW BRIGHT: Children at Wagga Early Years Learning Centre painted rainbow pots for their upcoming rainbow week for Mia Stewart.

Children from Wagga Early Years Learning Centre used all the colours of the rainbow to show their support for a Wagga girl and her family.

The children were visited by staff from Bunnings and let loose on terracotta pots with paint.

They painted rainbows on the pots for their upcoming rainbow week, which is to help Mia Stewart, who was born with congenital femoral deficiency, meaning one leg is shorter than the other.

Mia has regular appointments with a specialist in Sydney for check-ups and prosthetic fittings.

Pots and paints were spread out on the table and children were encouraged to let their creativity run free.

The childcare centre is not the only business supporting Mia and her family raise the $300,000 they need to get to America for her surgery.

Numerous businesses in Wagga have donation tins at their counters and thousands has already been raised.

The family and supporters are hosting Mia’s Midwinter Mystical Ball next month as the major fundraiser.

Businesses have donated items for auction.
