A WIRRAL business has smashed its fundraising target in aid of a charity helping children with cerebral palsy just weeks after taking on the challenge.

The children and staff at Stick 'n' Step issued the team at The Accountancy Partnership (TAP) based in Birkenhead, with a series of dares which they have now completed. 

The plan was to raise £5,500 for the charity, but the final total was £5,895.

These included a hike up a Welsh mountain carrying plates of jelly, a relay race in chicken suits, a cycling spin dressed as superheroes and finally a Supersonic Shoelace Race!

Learning the fine motor skills needed to fasten shoelaces can be an intricate challenge for children with cerebral palsy.

Children at Stick 'n' Step challenged the TAP team to take it in turns tying each other's shoelaces as fast as they could with the fastest person to tie laces being the winner.

Lee Murphy, managing director at TAP, said: "When we realised we had reached our target, we were all absolutely thrilled.

"There were definitely lots of lumps in throats all round the office.

"We think Stick 'n' Step is an amazing charity and the children who attend the classes and the adults who support them are all superhumans!"

Esther Whitaker, head of fundraising at Stick 'n' Step, said: "We were so pleased to meet some members of The Accountancy Partnership when they got in touch with us to find out how they could help us by fundraising.

"We are so proud of what they achieved, rising to all the challenges the children set them and we’d like to say a very big thank you to them all."
