A WIRRAL charity's work supporting children with cerebral palsy has been boosted by a grant of £17,211 from the People's Postcode Lottery.

The money, from the Postcode Community Trust, will be used across the Stick'n'Step's two centres in Wallasey and Runcorn and contribute towards salary costs of the charity's classroom team, which delivers conductive education to more than 100 children.

Stick'n'Step's chief executive Amy Couture, said: “We are delighted and very grateful to have received this fantastic boost to our income.

"We rely on the generosity of our supporters and the hard work of our fundraising team to raise £660,000 every year to keep our doors open and provide our services free of charge to children with cerebral palsy and their families across the north west."

The Postcode Community Trust was established in 2014 to improve the health and wellbeing of communities across Great Britain.

Postcode Community Trust grants are made possible thanks to the funding generated from players of the People's Postcode Lottery.

Stick 'n' Step offers support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families.

The charity provides the children with totally free of charge conductive education sessions, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live independent lives.
