A VISIT by Santa surprised children who attend conductive education classes at the new Stick ‘n’ Step centre in Runcorn.

Youngsters and their families were treated to a Christmas party at a hotel sponsored by AHS Commercial Ltd,who covered the entire cost.

Hettie Miles, corporate and community fundraiser for Stick ‘Step, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at AHS Commercial Ltd who made this fantastic event possible.

“We all had a wonderful time and I’m sure the children will never forget Santa’s visit either.”

Stick ‘n’ Step provides free conductive education sessions at Tudor Hall on York Street for children with cerebral palsy and supports the whole family.

The charity’s support improves mobility, independence and boosts self-confidence, enabling every child to reach their personal potential.
