Most of you will know Jude has a stroke when he was born and has Cerebral palsy, affecting his right hand side of his body. His hand function is very limited.

Step and learn children's charity has been instrumental in improving his hand usage. They are a small charity in Kent but children come from many miles to use them. They offer a totally free service, seeing Jude once a week since he was 6 months old. They are struggling for premises due to finanaces and we want to help them! www.stepandlearn.org for more info.

The second part of this fundraising effort is something called CIMT or contraint induced movement therapy. Previously this was only available in America, but.... GOOD NEWS!! It has come to a therapy Centre in Manchester. The treatment is not cheap but it has been proven to increase usage of the affected limb by up to 80%! Nothing is as affective in children with Jude's condition. It does not come cheap as it involves a three week stay with 2 physio staff for 4 hours each day. www.cimt.co.uk for more info.

We are aiming to raise money so that both Step and Learn, and this new therapy, can help Jude to use his hand as much as possible.

Many events will be posted on here. Currently we have Linda Humphrey, Jude's Aunt, actually doing some exercise (running!) that's got to be worth a donation! Thank you for your support it is always appreciated, never forgotten.

Please don't worry about signing up to paypal being time consuming, I just tried it, if you haven't got an account like me it takes about 90 seconds and you can donate just with card details... it is easy!!
