We are raising money for a lovely local boy called Asher, here is his story:
Asher was born 10 weeks early with 3 holes in his heart. He had multiple operations to correct this and bravely fought back to good health. However at 8 months old Asher was diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a general term describing conditions that cause movement problems. Spastic cerebral palsy is where the muscles are stiff and rigid in one or more limbs in Asher’s case quadriplegic means that all four limbs are affected. The underlying problem is damage to, or faulty development of part of the brain, in some cases there are also associated problems such as learning difficulties.
Now at 4 years old Asher is a happy, smiley young boy who loves to engage with everyone around him however he is unable to walk, sit or feed himself properly. Asher has physiotherapy every day from his family and once a week from a Physiotherapist to try and alleviate some of the issues and to try and improve his motor function. This is the minimal amount that is required and Asher would benefit greatly from some intense physiotherapy sessions to try and bring on his development. As Asher is non-verbal there are many pieces of equipment that would help Asher to develop further and allow him to enjoy life to the full.
We are raising money for Asher through the Anthony Knights Foundation we would love to provide him with everything that he needs but unfortunately these specialized treatments and equipment are very costly and we can only begin to give him what he deserves with the generous help of others. The Anthony Knights Foundation will collect any money donated and use it to directly pay for any treatments or equipment that Asher requires.
A Grand Prix charity ball has been organized on Saturday 8th October at The Village Hotel, Farnborough.
We will be holding an auction, silent auction and tombola.
Tickets are available at £45 each or £400 for table of 10, we also have a variety of sponsorship packages available from £100-£750.
