There were so many amazing people and companies to choose from. We thank everyone who fundraised, volunteered, attended, worked and spread awareness about Stick ‘n’ Step within the community. Together they have enabled children living with cerebral palsy to access conductive education that focuses on each child’s potential, nurturing their development and devising structured programmes to help them succeed.”
