Children at Stick ‘n’ Step have enjoyed some fabulous holiday fun this summer during visits either to local countryside inclusive outdoor education activity centre, Barnstondale, in Wirral, or to The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust in Cheshire.
Over 60 children and young people from the charity’s two centres in Wallasey and Runcorn have had the time of their lives, with some staying overnight and some enjoying day visits.
Along with feeding some very friendly farm animals, the youngsters have learned new outdoor skills, including abseiling, axe throwing, and fire-lighting.
This work has been supported by funding from Sport England and WheelPower/CP Sport/LimbPower/Dwarf Sports Association UK and also funding from The Barbara Ward Children’s Foundation.
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
