Story

I was lucky enough to have access to superb treatment at a very early age for bilateral club feet and I have been receiving treatment most of my life. 

A colleague of my orthopaedic consultant, Dr. Steve Mannion, (based at Blackpool Victoria Hospital) is deeply involved in setting up a charity to treat people with club feet in Malawi. 

I have chosen to help this charity for this special birthday of mine as I know first-hand what a great difference it can make. I will be starting on the 4th July 2017 and finishing on the 4th November 2017.

The website speaks for itself.
