Charity for children with cerebral palsy thanks The Sun for £10,000 cash boost from our £1m 50th birthday fund

STICK n Step, a charity for children and young people that suffer with cerebral palsy, has said thanks a million to Sun readers for their grant from our special 50th birthday fund.

The charity received a cash boost of £10,000 from our £1million giveaway last year.

Applications are judged by our panel including Sun Agony Aunt Deidre Sanders.

One in 400 children in the UK has cerebral palsy.

The Wallasey and Runcorn-based Stick ’n’ Step supports children and young people with the condition from Merseyside, Cheshire, Manchester and North Wales in an effort to improve their mobility and confidence by providing conductive education (CE), which has been found to be highly effective.

More than 100 children are provided with a specialised programme of activity-based tasks designed to help them learn key skills.

Fundraiser Janet Ratcliffe said: “It is a very special place to work.

"We thank The Sun for helping us to continue inspiring and enabling children with cerebral palsy to lead a more independent life.”
