Louie gets into gear for the charity that supports him

Louie trike

A boy from Wilmslow who has cerebral palsy, is fundraising for the charity that supports him.

Nine year old Louie, who attends conductive education sessions every week at charity Stick 'n' Step's centre in Runcorn, is aiming to cycle the grand total of 100 miles by the end of August on his specially adapted trike.

So far, he has cycled over 60 miles and has raised almost £2000.

Samantha Lee, Interim Head of Fundraising at Stick 'n' Step, said "We have to raise £660,000 to deliver our services to over 100 families each year. This year, more than ever, it's so humbling when one of our children takes the initiative to fundraise and shows such commitment to achieving their goal."

Stick 'n' Step offers support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families. The charity provides the children with free conductive education sessions, helping them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives.
