Local grandmother Nora McKee of Aston, Stevenage is delighted with the latest venture of her eldest grandchild, Freddie. The intrepid eight year old has cycled 14 miles and raised £1000 for her Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre in Letchworth.
Freddie’s thoughtful endeavour was inspired by his grandmother’s kindness and generous spirit. He and his father, Oscar Hopkinson 39, originally planned a 10 mile course along Bournemouth beachfront, but completed 14!
Freddie was delighted with his achievement, saying “‘Thank you so much to all the kind people who sponsored me, I raised £1000 and it is thanks to you. I am happy to be able to help my Nana and other people with MS.”
Last Wednesday, Freddie and his family visited the Herts MS Therapy Centre in Letchworth, discovering how his amazing achievement would help his grandmother and many others.
Manager Mark Boscher thanked Freddie for raising so much money. He explained: “Our centre will be able to help even more people like Nora because of Freddie’s hard work and kindness. Well done Freddie – and thank you.”
Mrs McKee is a regular user of the centre which provides physiotherapy, oxygen treatment and a range of complementary offerings; delivering over 8000 therapies per annum. The centre aims to deliver affordable and accessible treatments for as many people as possible, and in 2012 extended its practice to Luton, Hoddesdon and St Albans.
The centre is hosting an open day on Saturday 17th May from 10am – 1pm. Everyone is welcome to come along to find out what the centre offers. Free treatments and delicious cake will be available on the day.
