The Joe Noakes Trust was a charity very close to Steve's heart.
Joe was Steve's nephew, he was a cheeky, funny little boy with an insatiable appetite for life. He was however also autistic and given the prognosis of never being able to walk or communicate in the 'normal' way. With the help of an intensive early intervention program, Joe defied all odds, and did learn to walk and talk. He went to school and pushed all boundaries. Tragically Joe died suddenly and without reason in his sleep, a week after turning 4 years old.
The charity was formed by Joe's parents to help other young children like Joe reach their full potential by helping them access intensive early intervention.
Steve's family are hugely grateful for all donations received and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting a charity which was so close to Steve's.
