Kind-hearted strangers give Kirsty’s garden a make-over
Kind-hearted strangers give Kirsty’s garden a make-over

THE community has once again rallied together to show support for Kirsty Mcdonald and her young family.

In a bid to make life easier for her two daughters, The Shannon Bradshaw Trust enlisted the help of volunteers to transform the Mcdonald garden.

Kirsty, from Orford, is facing her third cervical cancer diagnosis despite just being 26.

Over the past 18 months Kirsty has been juggling raising her two children, paying her bills and undergoing gruelling cancer treatment.

Kirsty’s mum Janette contacted The Shannon Bradshaw Trust, based in Penketh, to see if they could help by donating a trampoline that would be suitable for six-year-old Eva who has a severe disability.

When Patti Bradshaw, from the charity, visited the garden, she thought it would be nice to go above and beyond and give the garden a complete makeover for the children.

Jeff Hartley, from Trinity Facilities, asked how he could help and extended the garden wall for the family for free.

After Jeff rendered the wall and Johnstones Decorating donated paint and brushes, Patti appealed on Facebook to find an artist.

This is when Jason Morley offered his skills and said he had been touched by Kirsty’s story and would like to help the family.

The talented artist has transformed the outdoor space for Ava and Ella into a colourful oasis where the two can enjoy playing with their mum.

The gofundme appeal has raised more than £36,000 for Kirsty and her family, you can donate here

Shannon Bradshaw Trust helps Callum Foy on his treatment journey

THE Shannon Bradshaw Trust presented Callum Foy with a £2,000 cheque to help the family’s fundraising efforts.

Last Thursday, Callum and his family visited the centre in Penketh not knowing about the donation.

The money will help fund the 10-year-old’s trip to Germany in September where he will receive proton beam therapy to treat his cancer.

Comedian Charlie Hale took Callum back to his house afterwards where he gifted him a signed Leroy Sane Manchester City shirt.

As reported previously in the Warrington Guardian, Orford youngster Callum is facing the fight of his life with cancer.

Two of the little children we are helping at the moment, Bobby Brown received a cheque for £1000 for his trip to America for further eye treatment.

And Little Leon Hoey also received a cheque for £1000 to help build his Hydro Pool to help him with his Cerebal Palsy.

Hoops and dreams for Theo after charity wheelchair donation
Hoops and dreams for Theo after charity wheelchair donation

A POTENTIAL basketball star received the perfect Christmas gift thanks to The Shannon Bradshaw Trust.

Theo Higham took up the sport after being diagnosed with a genetic condition so rare it has not even been given a proper name yet.

The 11-year-old, from Fearnhead, can walk but the strain of muscular dystrophy he has, known as MDC1A, means he has always struggled to play sport until he discovered wheelchair basketball with the Widnes Vikings.

After progressing quickly since starting in October last year, Theo reached the point he needed his own specially adapted sports chair.

But at a cost of £1,800, his family needed help fulfilling his Christmas wish.

Mum Emma Wordsworth-Higham said: “He was getting picked for the team so he needed to get his own chair but we found they were really expensive.

“Some of the other parents at the club suggested seeing if a charity could help so we wrote to Patti at the Shannon Bradshaw Trust to see if there was anything she could do.

“We were made up when she came back to us to say they could buy one for us.”

Patti Bradshaw, from The Shannon Bradshaw Trust which supports children with life-threatening conditions and their families, said they were delighted to help.
