Gifts galore for Stick ‘n’ Step thanks to local supporters

Staff, children and their families at cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step have once more been bowled over by the generosity of local people.

Liscard’s Cherry Tree Shopping Centre selected Stick ‘n’ Step as its chosen charity this Christmas and has been running a Give a Gift campaign, asking kind-hearted shoppers to donate a present for children who attend sessions at the charity’s centres. Sacks and sacks of wonderful presents were donated to the special giant Christmas gift at the shopping centre.

Stick ‘n’ Step’s Community Fundraiser, Rhianna McDermott, said, “We simply couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw the stack of gifts that had been donated by local people in Wallasey.

“This year especially, when so many people are facing hard times, we were touched beyond belief by everyone’s generosity. The children will be so excited to open their gifts and we would like to say a great big thank you to Cherry Tree Shopping Centre for organising it all and of course to everyone who so kindly gave a gift.”

The presents were shared out at the Stick ‘n’ Step Christmas party, which was held in Leasowe Castle Hotel on 11 December. The party was sponsored by The Gould Family Charitable Trust and was held for children who attend Stick ‘n’ Step and their families.

Stick ‘n’ Step provides free weekly conductive education sessions to children and young people with cerebral palsy up to the age of 25, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives. 

The charity relies on supporters and volunteers to help raise the £750,000 required to deliver its services to over 100 families each year at its Wallasey and Runcorn centres. Find out more about the charity by visiting
