Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Before Christmas 2015 I was hit by a lorry, it broke my leg in  lots of places and I ended up in Alder Hey for treatment.

Not only were the nurses and doctors fab they also arranged for me to meet the Liverpool Football team, Steven Gerrard and gave me Christmas presents too.

My parents got to stay in a Ronald McDonald house too as the hospital is a long way from where we live in Wrexham. So thanks to people who put their change in the collection boxes in the restaurants!

It will be a long time until my leg is well enough for me to walk on - I next go back for surgery in February, but until then for every £1 I manage to raise in sponsorship my parents will walk, swim or run a mile for me. When my leg is well enough I intend to walk myself from where the accident happened to Alder Hey hospital about 50 miles.

I like writing music so at some point I hope to write a track to raise some money too.

I call this page Every Penny Counts as we like to ask people to look around their house behind the cushions on the sofa etc to find their loose change to donate. Because when we add it up every penny counts.

I've put a start target of £500 but I hope eventually to raise a lot more than that.
