WHEN Cefyn Hughes decided to give up alcohol for a charity helping children with cerebral palsy, his colleagues contributed to his fundraising efforts.

Cefyn, who works at the Bromborough-based firm, has been fundraising hard for the cerebral palsy charity and has raised more than £1000 so far by cutting out alcohol.

FMC Chemicals is supporting Stick 'n' Stop as its charity for 2020/2021 and sponsored him.

Cefyn was inspired to take on his challenge by one of his colleagues at FMC Chemicals, Lee Bridgwater, from Neston.

Lee's eight-year-old son Oliver has cerebral palsy and attends weekly sessions at Stick ‘n’ Step’s Wallasey centre.

Lee said: "The difference in Oliver’s development since coming to Stick'n'Step is amazing and I am so grateful to all at Stick'n'Step who help to support Oliver and the rest of our family too."

Cefyn said: "Exchanging my usual pint of beer for orange juice was a great challenge for me and I really appreciate the support of friends, family and FMC Chemicals, who made it all worthwhile by sponsoring me.

"We're looking forward to taking part in future events to help to raise more funds for Stick'n'Step."

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.

More than 100 children from across the region attend these sessions weekly or twice weekly at the charity’s Wallasey and Runcorn centres.
