I will be doing a 5k Santa Dash in London on 6th December 2015 to help raise funds for a £2.500 special needs trike for my Great Niece Olive. Please sponsor me to help me put a smile on this little girl's face. Many thanks.

Olive is a four year old girl in reception at Deeping St James Community Primary School with a very rare undiagnosed condition. Olive faces many challenges but has a very special, independent can do attitude to life and touches the heart of everyone she meets. Olive was born with one half of her body significantly smaller and weaker than the other. This has caused a variety of problems for Olive where her legs are different lengths and had to have her right foot amputated to enable her to walk using a prosthetic leg. Olive has Scoliosis due to her uneven body growth, uneven hips and torticollis causing her to hold her head to one side causing her difficulties with balance and fatigue. Olive has a smaller right hand and arm with some bone abnormalities which causes her difficulties in daily life. Olive was able to have a ride on a Tom Cat Trike, a special needs trike which is custom made and adapted for her needs. It enabled her for the very first time to cycle, much to our amazement and joy! Olive could sit safely, with her posture and spine supported, and adaptions made to accommodate her prosthetic leg and knee positions which are at significantly different heights. Not to mention she absolutely LOVED it!!! We are fundraising to purchase Olive a Tom Cat trike which will give her the joy and freedom to cycle like any other child, improve Olives strength, fitness and confidence, showing her and other children that no matter what your difficulties in life they can be overcome and nothing can stop you achieving! Thank you very much for your support and for more information please feel free to chat to me or visit
