New fundraiser joins cerebral palsy charity

Stick ‘n’ Step, a charity for cerebral palsy, has added a Community and Events Fundraiser to its Fundraising Team who will work at both of the organization’s centres in Wallasey and Runcorn.

After studying Criminology at Leeds University, Jodie Solaiman realized her true passion was to work for a charity.

Her brother’s sudden brain injury gave her firsthand experience of the invaluable support charities can provide, and she has been fundraising tirelessly as a way to express gratitude to the charities that supported her family during their difficult times.

With extensive experience in fundraising and community engagement, Jodie is also a social media enthusiast. She is now looking forward to bringing her skills and experience to positively impact the children, young people and their families at Stick ‘n’ Step.

Jodie said, “Having been a carer for my younger brother since the brain injury he suffered some years ago, I feel a huge empathy with the families that Stick ‘n’ Step supports. I’m really looking forward to getting to know the Stick ‘n’ Step community and finding new and exciting ways we can work together to raise funds.”

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
