Great support for Stick ‘n’ Step at Wirral Walk

Around 50 people took part in Wirral Walk last weekend on behalf of cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step.

This was the first event since the start of Covid that families supported by the charity have been able to get together for. The new Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Jeff Green also attended to offer his support to those taking part.

Commenting on taking part in the event, Rhianna McDermott, Community Fundraiser at Stick ‘n’ Step, said, “Being able to get together for an event that all our children and their families could get involved with was so special to witness and be a part of too.

“Seeing the children smile as they approach the finishing line is something that will stay with me forever’.

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.  Over 100 children from across the region attend these sessions weekly or twice weekly at the charity’s Wallasey and Runcorn centres.
