Raising money for various disability specific items and equipment
“Yehhhh I can now communicate with my Eyes!. My new eye gaze communication system is so much fun, I can use lots of different cause and effect software and when I look and focus on the screen with my eyes something always happens which is absolutely amazing.
I can face splat pictures of my mummy, daddy, sister and brother and pets, as well as smashing bottles of the shelf, making lots of fun patterns and colours with my eyes, emptying the leaves and snow on the screen to reveal pictures, choosing family members with my eyes but this is a bit tricky and will need lots of practice as I have to focus on the picture for a while and quite often my stupid brain wave activity doesn’t allow me to do this!.
In the future I would love to be able to choose between some basic symbols and communicate some basic words to let my Mummy and Daddy know how I’m feeling and what food/drink I would prefer etc, but this is going to take a lot of patience and hard work, and will depend on my health and silly head!
Thank you so much to everyone who donated to my brand new eye gaze communication system, it really is so much appreciated and you are all incredibly kind and wonderful people. I really do have so much fun and get some much enjoyment out of using it, thank you all,
Loads of love

During 2015 we raised enough money for my dream of a wheelchair accessible/sensory garden at home.
My garden is now fully completed and it is absolutely amazing.
I can now access my garden in my wheelchair and spend quality time together with my Mummy, Daddy, sister and brother all together in our back garden, something which I was never been able to do in the past.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated towards my new Sensory garden I will be eternally grateful to all of you x

Runs4Funds is a fundraising initiative founded by Northamptonshire Steelbacks all-rounder, Steven Crook, that was born following an emotional meeting with two inspirational parents of Northampton-born, Lewis Herbert.
Lewis and his family’s story was covered in the local newspaper, where they spoke of their efforts to recruit fundraisers to help raise enough money to provide much-needed facilities and equipment for 12 year old LGS-sufferer, Lewis.
Throughout the 2015 season, Steven supported the A Life For Lewis Appeal by helping raise nearly £5,000 towards a much needed sensory garden for Lewis to enjoy. Read more.. Runs4Funds 2015
