It was, she declared between fits of giggles, the best Easter ever. Thusha Kamaleswaran, Britain’s youngest gangland gun victim, is seen here enjoying a rare day out with her family on a sunny Good Friday.
The visit to a petting zoo was a milestone in the six-year-old’s attempt to live a normal life after she was left paralysed from the waist down when a gunman opened fire into her uncle’s convenience store in March last year.

Laughing with delight as she fulfilled her long-held wish to ride a pony, Thusha said: ‘It was so exciting even though I was quite high up.’
Egg hunt: Thusha Kamaleswaran, six, enjoys an Easter day out with her four-year-old sister Thushaika at Marsh Farm, Essex
Unforgettable: Thusha looks thrilled as she meets an Easter lamb at the Essex petting zoo. The six-year-old is doing her best to lead a normal life after she was caught up in a shooting in London last year
She also took part in a giant Easter egg hunt, cradled a one-day-old chick and fed week-old lambs during the day out at Marsh Farm in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex, accompanied by her sister Thushaika, four, and brother Thusan, 13.

The Mail on Sunday told last week how Thusha, whose dream was to become a dancer, was caught in the crossfire during the shooting in Stockwell, South London.
Her Sri Lankan parents explained they had not told Thusha that doctors have said she will never walk again, because they are praying for a miracle. Since then donations to the Thusha Appeal Fund, launched by officers from the Metropolitan Police, have risen to more than £100,000.

Supportive: Thusha with her mother Sharmila, father Jeyakumar and sister Thushaika. Her parents cannot bring themselves to tell her she will never walk again after the shooting, which was caught on CCTV, right

The family, of Ilford, Essex, describes the response as incredible.

Her father Jeyakumar, 37, said: ‘These donations will help her to lead as normal a life as possible as she grows up.’
Nathaniel Grant, 21, Kazeem Kolawole, 19, and Anthony McCalla, 20, were convicted at the Old Bailey of shooting Thusha. They will be sentenced on April 19.
Donations can be sent to Thusha Appeal Fund, HSBC, Wimbledon Hill Road, London, SW19 7NF. The sort code is 40-07-30, account number 12239108.
