Raising money for various disability specific items and equipment
We are delighted to let you all know that Lewis' multi sensory room is now finished! We wanted to thank each and every one of you that has helped this happen for Lewis.
He absolutely loves it and is so relaxed, calm and happy when using it.
We have been truly humbled by and very overwhelmed by people's generosity and it will never be forgotten! This all means a tremendous amount to our whole family.
All our love
Lexi, Gary, Lewis, Kira & Oscar! xxxxx
An extra special thanks from Lewis..
“Chill time.. I absolutely love my brand new specially adapted Sensory Room, it really is the coolest room ever!. It really is my favourite place in the whole world (along with my garden!) as I can relax, look at my amazing bubble and rainbow tube, infinity panel, Catherine wheel, fibre optics, and projectors, listen to soothing therapy music etc. I love all the different bright colours (Luckily for me I don’t have photosensitive epilepsy which is amazing considering I have every other type of seizure under the sun!), and sounds and it really does help me relax and have lots of fun.
Thank you so much to each and everyone of who donated to my New Sensory Room, you are all so incredibly kind and generous, and you are all more than welcome to come and join me in my sensory room, but beware it can make you so relaxed that you fall asleep ! (Just ask Mummy and Daddy!).
Loads of love and special thanks,
Lewis xxx “

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.. Summer 2015 - Steven Crook Runs4Funds
