We need to raise £50000 for Shea's Therapy - a huge amount!! Shea needs to attend a centre twice a year for at least the next 5 years to get maximum benefit from the therapy. We are on the way but need another £30000 to get to the total.
We also use the funds raised to pay for Shea's arm splint (the NHS refuse to pay for even though they accept there is a need) He needs a new one approx every 9 months these cost approx £550 a time from Second Skin. This splint has transformed Shea's right arm prognosis and he now is starting to use his right hand more and more.
NYMFS Fishing Club raised £1330.
Real Asset Management PLC staff donate £1000.
Thank you to Mark Johnson and all the staff who raised the money over the course of the year.
REUTERS CENTENARY FUND generously donate £3500. Thank you to Julia Fuller of Reuters for putting Shea forward, and all the Centenary funds Trustee's for once again donating towards Shea's therapy.
