Tranmere Rovers FC players score with Christmas visit to local children's charity

CHRISTMAS arrived early for Wallasey charity Stick 'n' Step, on the 18 December 2015, players from Tranmere Rovers Football Club called in to spend some time with the children. Stick 'n' Step provides free conductive education and support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families. 3 of Tranmere Rovers' players dropped by, including Martin Riley, Liam Davies, Mitchell Duggan.

Stick 'n' Step gave the players a tour of the centre in Wallasey, where the children and families come for the conductive education sessions and to see their friends. The players spent time socialising with the children, seeing what is involved in the various different sessions and having a Christmas party, where the children were given Christmas gifts. The afternoon was enjoyed by all, as the children met some of their local professional footballing heroes.

Commented Sarah Smithson, Operations Manager at Stick 'n' Step:- "We had a great afternoon. The children thoroughly enjoyed talking and playing with some real life sporting heroes. The club has a great history and heritage on the Wirral and we want to thank Tranmere Rovers FC for being so kind in giving up their time to visit everyone here at Stick 'n' Step. It was some of the children's last days before we break up for Christmas and it was made very special and memorable by the players' generosity."

Stick 'n' Step provides free conductive education sessions, which are not offered by the NHS, to help children with cerebral palsy learn vital life skills, like walking and talking, through participating in group activities. It's a place where they can make friends and grow in confidence, and where parents have access to respite and support. Families travel each week from across the North West and North Wales to the Stick 'n' Step Centre in Wallasey to receive this life-changing service. Stick 'n' Step receives no government funding and relies completely on fundraising to cover its annual running cost of £370,000.
