Hello Can i please ask for a few minutes of your time to tell you about my friend George.

At 3 weeks old George contracted a form of meningitis which left him with Cerebral Palsy. As a result of this, George is unable to walk even with support, George is blind in his left eye and suffers from Epilepsy.

Now, at 19 years of age, George is collected on a Monday morning and attends collage until Friday when he returns home . At collage George receives speech and language therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and life skill to enable him further in life.The London borough of Tower Hamlets could not offer George any of the above so he has to stay away from home to attend collage.His mum Eileen misses him so much whilst his away learning but understands that this is his choice and in his own words "I need to get smart mum" Such determination !!

As George is home most weekends he only receives DLA (funding) for the nights that he spends at home. These funds enable George to go to Budapest once a year to the Peto Institution which specialises in its work with people who have motor disabilities.

GEORGES DREAM 

Like everybody, George has a dream. His dream would be a trip of a lifetime to go to Disneyland and swim with dolphin. If ever there was a young man who deserved this opportunity it is George. To help fulfill his dream we are kindly asking for donations to help him achieve this no matter how small - every penny helps . Your donations will contribute towards the cost of the trip £3,300.00 and it would be greatly appreciated if we can all do our bit to raise this money for such a worthwhile cause.

As a personal note i can truly say that George is such an inspiration to all who meet him and we should be so grateful for everything that we have so often taken for granted.

GEORGE you are a Star !!!!
