Story

Thomas has a dual diagnosis on Downs syndrome and Autuism.

 We started visiting our local park during lockdown as our main exercise.

 At first Thomas would only go in his wheelchair and we struggled to get him to only walk a short distance and would either hurry back to the car or climb back into his wheelchair .

We have over 7months encouraged him to walk,whilst pushing his wheelchair and then encouraging him to walk further ,up until now where he will walk a good mile route as part of a structured routine .

 Some days he cannot cope and this results in his laying on the floor ,other days it's too busy and he struggles either throwing his wheelchair and or attacking us.

 This walking is a huge achievement for Thomas ,a walk in a park, something most of us take for granted

He is doing a sponsored walk/exercise for his club Kids in Action .
This charity was our life line and we miss it. We want to give back to help fund this amazing charity.
 We aim to" walk "everyday and complete this walk in the month of February.
 If you'd love to sponsor him please pm me or donate via just giving
