Cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step was lucky enough to play host to the Mayor and Mayoress of Wirral, Councillor George Davies and his wife Cath, just before they stepped down from the roles.

Stick ‘n’ Step showed the visitors around their Wirral centre and the couple had the opportunity to watch a conductive education session. Evaline, aged nine, who lives in Ellesmere Port, and was taking part in the session, has been attending weekly sessions at the Wirral centre since the age of two. Initially only able to walk with the aid of a frame, she can now walk unaided. Currently she is working on her ability to stand from a seated position without needing to support herself.

Former Mayor, Councillor George Davies said,

“We have seen such a range of fantastic local charities over the twelve months of our term in office.  It was really interesting to see at first-hand the work being carried out at Stick ‘n’ Step’s centre. Evaline was concentrating so hard and has clearly achieved so much in her years of attending her sessions at the charity, it was truly inspirational to see.”

Amy Couture, CEO of Stick ‘n’ Step, commented,

“It was such an honour to welcome the Mayor and the Mayoress to our centre and we were so pleased they managed to fit in a visit while one of our conductive education sessions was taking place. As ever, we are hugely grateful for the support we receive from our wonderful local communities in Wallasey and Runcorn.”
