Cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step, which has a centre at Wallasey, is currently celebrating its 18th anniversary year.
As part of the celebrations, to boost its fundraising efforts, the charity is holding an online art auction, featuring 20 works of art, from landscapes to superheroes, kindly donated by artists from across the North West.
The auction is now up and running online, with the final auction taking place live on Friday 6 August, the last day of Stick ‘n’ Step’s anniversary year.

Samantha Lee, Interim Head of Fundraising, said,
We have been inundated with art donations from local artists supporting us through this difficult time. There is something for everyone and many have starting bids of just £5.
Stick ‘n’ Step offers support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families. The charity provides the children with totally free of charge conductive education sessions, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives.
Stick ‘n’ Step supports the whole family. Regular attendance at the centres means that parents and extended family have the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation and they benefit from regular respite time whilst their children develop in the classroom.
For more information about Stick ‘n’ Step and how you can help, visit www.sticknstep.org or call (Wallasey) 0151 638 0888 or (Runcorn) 01928 573777. Over 100 children from across the region usually attend these sessions weekly or twice weekly at the charity’s Wallasey and Runcorn centres.
