This Saturday, 28th January 2017, marks the third anniversary of Mae’s SDR surgery – where has the time gone?!
We always celebrate Mae’s surgery day as a marker of the huge milestone it was in offering her a door to independence. We have seen her show true grit since her surgery, and a consistent detrmination to develop strength and walking skills. We are now resuming our fundraising to support Mae’s intensive therapy courses, required to keep her mobile and build her strength.
At present we are seeing the true value of consistency with Mae’s therapy. Unfortunately Mae broke her arm before Christmas and, due to the weight of her pot and not being able to weight-bear on it, she has been unable to use her walker, or attend her therapy. She has just returned to school today, after 7 weeks away, and we will be resuming her therapy sessions to get her up and about. She has been quite frustrated to be immobile, and have to rely on using her wheelchair each day, and is looking forward to her normal routine.
We are holding our hand-made king-size quilt grand draw on Saturday at 5pm, in Cantley, and coupling this with an Open House (from 10am to 5pm) where Phoenix Trading greeting cards and stationery can also be bought in aid of Hope4Mae. All are welcome – please contact Amy on 07572 878 679 or Sarah on 07587 245 658 for details of the event or to buy raffle tickets.
We hope you can join us celebrate Mae’s progress!
We have recently been approached by Dave and three friends as they are undertaking a mammoth walk accross Peddar’s Way and asked Hope4Mae if they could fundraise along the way! You can see the extent of their journey on the National Trail website – it’s quite a feat!
Dave and Team will start their walk today, and continue their 95 mile journey until 26th September. Please show your support by donating on our Just Giving page, quoting ‘Peddar’s Way’ as reference.
Here’s hoping the weather is knid and the blisters are few for Dave and the Team. We’ll let you know how they get on. Thanks to all involved!

On Saturday our team of 15 Hope4Mae supporters ran the Colour Obstacle Rush 2016 at Rother Valley Country Park in Sheffield.
With varying abilities (and ages!) we forged ahead to overcome obstacles – of the bouncy, wobbly and space-hoppery type, plus powder paint thrown from all angles!
It was a fantastic day and we will let you know how much we have raised when donations are all in.
We are continuing to raise funds to pay for Mae’s ongoing rehabilitation costs, which are not supported by the NHS. A single session of Physiotherapy costs £60, so all donations are welcome, thank you!
Please consider pledging – any amount adds up – in the following ways:
