High Sheriff of Merseyside visits Wirral charity Stick 'n' Step
10:12am Friday 13th December 2013 in News
Wirral-based children’s charity Stick ‘n’ Step welcomed the High Sheriff of Merseyside Ian Meadows - dressed in his full regalia - to its centre on Wednesday.
The High Sheriff had the opportunity to look in on a session where he was able to see first-hand the benefits of conductive education for children with cerebral palsy.
The visit also included a tour of the specialist facilities at the centre, including the Sage Room, Sensory Room, the main session spaces and the Parents’ Room.
Stick ‘n’ Step is a children’s charity that provides free specialist conductive education and support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families and carers across the North West of England and North Wales.
There are currently 70 children attending sessions at Stick ‘n’ Step, which costs approximately £350,000 each year to fund. The charity relies entirely on grants and the generosity of donations from the community to remain a free service.
Kerry Roe-Ely, community and events fundraiser at Stick ‘n’ Step, said: “We were introduced to the High Sheriff a few weeks ago at a charity event. “The Sheriff expressed his eagerness to come and see for himself the work that we do, which we were more than happy to arrange.
“Having the High Sheriff of Merseyside visit our centre is a huge honour and we are extremely grateful for his extended support and commitment to help us.
“His business, local manufacturing company RS Clare and Co, has also joined our 50/50 challenge and we are thrilled to have a well-known local organisation fundraise for us.”
Mr Meadows said: “Volunteers appear in all walks of life.
“They seek no reward, but they do deserve recognition, and if part of my role can be to recognise the benefits they bring to others and recognise them as individuals, I shall be more than happy to devote much of my time to visiting volunteers throughout the county and personally thanking them for all that they do.”
