This summer saw the return of the hugely successful Bolton Boundary Walk. Twenty eight enthusiastic volunteers took up either the two day challenge of walking the entire 50 mile Bolton boundary or the one day 25 mile challenge.
Together they have raised over £5,000 to help provide specialised equipment to children living with disabilities. Children like six year old Reece, from Bolton (pictured below). Reece has epilepsy and severe learning difficulties. He finds it difficult to walk any distance and is unaware of the dangers around him so needs constant supervision when out. Reece’s parents asked Children Today to fund a specialised buggy and we were only too happy to help.
For Reece and his family having the use of this buggy opens up a world of possibilities. He can now safely take part in many more family activities such as visits to the zoo or park without his mum or dad worrying about him.
Children Today would like to say a big thank you to all those who took part and to those who helped make this another exceptional event.
Look out for 2013 event details!
