Tracy is 30 in November and Rose in January.

The evening was a huge success and we raised over £3,000. A big big thank you to eveyone who supported us in this and made it happen. [/p][p]We embarked on this challenge to raise money for causes close to our hearts; Rose the Stroke Association and Tracy the Spinal Injuries Association.  [/p][p]In 2008, after being rushed in to hospital in the middle of the night Tracy’s Mum (Linda) was eventually diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. This resulted in Linda becoming paralysed from the waist down. After spending 6 months in hospital and rehabilitation she returned home and began to adapt to life in a wheelchair. Throughout her stay in Southport Spinal Unit the SIA were always there to offer her support and advice.[/p][p]Rose’s grandfather (John) suffered a stroke in October 2012. This was an awful experience for John and Rose’s gran Hilda who within a matter of moments were facing an uncertain future together and the family faced life-changing decisions.  Fortunately John has recovered well, but this has made us all very aware of the fantastic work the Stroke Association do to support stroke victims and fund research that will ensure more sufferers can make the best possible recovery.[/p][p][span=color: #ff0000;][b]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/b][/span][/p]
