Wallasey and Runcorn based cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step has announced the winners of its Summer Raffle, sponsored by Slater and Gordon Lawyers.
The first prize of £1,000 has been won by Emily Reynolds, who lives near Chester. Emily is a one-to-one teaching assistant, who works in Higher Kinnerton’s primary school with Noah, aged 8, who also attends weekly conductive education sessions at Stick ‘n’ Step. Emily has been working with Noah since he was in nursery. Noah’s mum bought Emily the winning raffle ticket as part of an end of year thank you gift for all the help she has given Noah when he is in school.
Emily was so surprised to hear she won she had to check the ticket several times and then burst into tears of happiness! Additional prizes of £500, £250, £100 and £50 were also won by local people from across the region.
Interim Head of Fundraising at Stick ‘n’ Step, Samantha Lee, said, “We are so grateful to our sponsors Slater and Gordon, who donated the prizes and made it possible to raise over £4500. This is a fantastic amount and demonstrates perfectly how well partnerships between charities and local businesses can work to help the wider community.”
Stick ‘n’ Step relies on supporters and volunteers to help raise the £660,000 required to deliver its services to over 100 families each year. You can find out more about the charity’s forthcoming events by visiting www.sticknstep.org
