Family of youngster with cerebral palsy organise festive fundraising event

The family of a youngster living with cerebral palsy are organising a fundraising event in a bid to raise money for their local hospital’s physiotherapy department.

Three-year-old Lincoln Hookey is currently undergoing regular physiotherapy at Warwick Hospital, attending the hospital’s Paediatric Physiotherapy Unit once a week in his efforts to beat cerebral palsy.

According to Lincoln’s mum, Sarah, the treatment has been hugely beneficial for the youngster – but has also lead her to realise that the hospital is somewhat underfunded in this area.

In an attempt to raise money for the Paediatric Physiotherapy Unit, she has organised a ‘festive fashion show’ – which will take place at Kings Meadow nursery in Warwick, along with Revolve women’s clothing store in Leamington.

The event will feature a two-course meal, drinks and a prize draw, reports suggest.

“It is hard to put into words the difference the support Lincoln has received so far has made to both his and our lives,” Sarah said.

“We want to raise as much money as possible to help support this wonderful team and ensure that Lincoln and other children in the area can continue to benefit from the life-enhancing care they give.”
