Matthew was diagnosed with Dandy Walker when he was born. The Dr's told his Mum - my best friend of over 30 years, Katie that he would never be able to walk or feed himself. Fast forward 12 years and this handsome young man starts high school in September. He uses a frame to help him get about as he gets tired quickly - but he has never let anything get in his way! He has an awesome sense of humour and always has me in stitches, and can run rings around me on the PlayStation! After going to Wythenshawe Wheelers with him this weekend, seeing the massive smile on his face as he was peddling around the track, telling me how he loved watching the wheels go round, I made enquiries about purchasing one for him. As these trikes are specially made for each person, they cost in the region of £1,500. A lot for his Mum to find! And unfair considering how cheaply you can pick up kids bikes nowadays. So im hoping that if everyone we know is willing to make a donation or hold a fundraising event, we can raise the funds to buy him one as a surprise! **We have already managed to raise £440!!

He is such a diamond and he deserves this and so much more! So anything you can do to help will be super appreciated xxx
