One small step for Harry!
Thanks for taking the time to visit Harry’s Just Giving page. Reading this short passage will only take you a matter of minutes to do so, however with your help it could change a little boy's life FOREVER.
This very special guy is 5 year old Harry Restall from Duston, Northampton. This very charismatic, cheeky, intelligent boy is an absolute marvel. He is a fighter who fought his upmost to live surviving prematurity, life-saving bowel surgery at one day old and countless sepsis infections whilst in NICU.
Unfortunately, Harry didn’t come out of this unscathed. He suffered from a brain injury called periventricular leukomalacia which has manifested as spastic diplegia cerebral palsy. This means that Harry’s movements are affected particularly his legs where he is unable to stand or walk unaided. This is a bit of a problem for an active little boy that adores rugby, strictly come dancing and P.E at school! Harry would love to take that first independent step, maybe succeed in scoring a try.
Earlier this year we welcomed Harry’s little sister into the world. A bittersweet moment knowing that her little footsteps will come first.
It would mean the world to Harry, his family & his friends to raise this money so that he can join in with playing with his siblings, his friends in the school playground, to take that first, precious step.
This dream can come true if Harry undergoes a life-changing operation called selective dorsal rhizotomy which reduces spasticity and will help Harry to walk. If we succeeded in achieving our fundraising goal, Harry would go to America to receive this pioneering surgery.
The cost of the operation will be £30,000 followed by 3 years of corrective physiotherapy which also costs £30,000. All of your support and help is massively appreciated and will be LIFE CHANGING for such a special little boy who wants nothing more than to stand on his own two feet!
Thank you again for your time! :)

About the fundraiser
Leicester, United Kingdom
I am a work colleague of Harry's father, I think Harry deserves the chance to be able to stand on his own two feet. To walk and run like every other young boy in his class at school. To play football, rugby or even dance during his PE lessons. Everyone should be given the chance!
