The family of a four-year-old girl with a brain tumour have collected money at a Stoke City football match towards raising £60,000 for more treatment.

Ruby Owen, of Kidsgrove, recovered from a tumour after £182,000 was raised for pioneering proton therapy in the US.

A scan in October 2010 revealed her cancer had gone following the treatment which was not available in the UK.

Cash will be collected at Thursday's Europa League game against Spanish side Valencia at the Britannia Stadium.
