A team of three have completed the fastest zipline in the world to raise money for cerebral palsy charity, Stick ‘n’ Step.

Tom Hughes, Jonathon Thornton and Lee Bridgewater took on the ‘Velocity 2’ in Snowdonia and have managed to raise £1,000 to support the charity.

Lee Bridgewater’s son, Oliver, nine, who has cerebal palsy attends the Stick ‘n’ Step centre in Wallasey for weekly conductive education sessions.

He said: “My son Oliver started at Stick ‘n’ Step three years ago and he has made so much progress with his strength and social development.

“He loves going there to see his friends and all the conductors and he always has fun.

“It was important for me to raise money for the charity as it has helped Oliver so much and made our family life a little easier.

“Stick ‘n’ Step is a very important charity as it is self-funded and needs every penny it can raise. I hope to do more charity events for it in the future.”

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 more independent lives.

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

Stick ‘n’ Step Interim Head of Fundraising, Samantha Lee, said, “Everyone at Stick’n’step would like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to Tom, Jonathan and Lee.
