WIRRAL charity Stick'n'Step will host an open day at its centre in Liscard later this week.

Wednesday's event aims to give businesses involved in fundraising a greater insight into the charity's work.

Amongs the guests will be Wirral's deputy mayor, Cllr Steve Foulkes.

Stick 'n' Step 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.

During the open day at the charity's premises in Croxteth Avenue, guests will have a chance to look-in on a session, learning how conductive education works and its importance to the development of abilities in children who attend Stick ‘n’ Step.

Staff will also be on-hand to answer any questions that guests might have.

Kerry Roe-Ely, community and events fundraiser at Stick 'n' Step, said: “We rely heavily on the support of businesses and community fundraisers in the area to ensure our doors are kept open.

"For us to be able to open our doors to our fundraisers and invite them to look-in is something we believe is important.

"It enables us to provide them with a full understanding of what exactly it is that we do, and how vital our services are to those who attend Stick ‘n’ Step."

Stick 'n' Step recently launched its 50/50 challenge, a fundraising initiative aimed at businesses with the goal of raising £150,000 throughout 2014.

Kerry Roe-Ely continued: "The 50/50 challenge is a huge target that we have set for ourselves, having never undertaken any business fundraising initiatives on this scale before, so 2014 should be a really exciting year."

If you are a business that is looking to fundraise for a local good cause, there are still a few challenge spaces remaining.
