A DJ's 20-hour long non-stop music set raised thousands of pounds for a Wallasey-based charity supporting children with cerebral palsy.

Paul Geddes' efforts raised £5,000 for Stick 'n' Step, which provides free education sessions to children with cerebral palsy.

Paul, part of duo DJ Geddes and Gioia, started the set at five o’clock in the morning on February 20 and finished at one o’clock the following morning.

Paul said: “A friend told me about the incredible work carried out by Stick ‘n’ Step and what a difference it makes to children and young people across the region.

“It was an honour to fundraise for such a great cause and I’d like to thank everyone for supporting me.”

As well at beating his £1,000 target Paul managed to accumulate 84,000 steps, burn 8,600 calories and lose 3kg in weight.

Stick 'n' Step incorporates play and music into structured routines to help develop functional skills, mobility, independence, and self-confidence.

The charity's community fundraiser Kelly Marks, said: “This was an extraordinary effort by Paul and a truly fantastic event.

“We can’t thank Paul and his family enough for their efforts in aid of all our children, young people and their families.”
