‘Going Green’ to raise awareness of cerebral palsy

Last month was Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month and charity Stick ‘n’ Step went green all through March to help raise awareness and funds. 

Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affects movement and co-ordination. It is the most common motor disability in childhood, with 1 in 400 babies estimated to be born every year in the UK with some form of it.

Sarah Johnson, Head of Fundraising at Stick ‘n’ Step, said, “From dressing in green clothes to decorating your workplace in green or even staging a green cake bake off, our supporters have always gone to wonderful lengths to Go Green for Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month.

“Our children have been having fun in the classroom throughout the month, with green arts and crafts galore!”

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 www.sticknstep.org

Please text SNSGREEN to 70085 to donate £5 to support Stick ‘n’ Step’s fundraising efforts.
