Last year Andrew Scott, Director of local travel company Stanley Travel, ran the Paris Marathon for Heel & Toe, again after seeing first-hand how the charity improved the children’s quality of life, increasing their mobility and movement and also their independence.
Andrew raised over £3,000 from the Paris Marathon and then his family followed suit, with son Gavin taking part in the Great North Run and daughter Megan doing a zipslide for Heel & Toe.
“I really am very honoured to become an Ambassador of Heel & Toe. It is a fantastic charity that is very close to my heart and has been my main focus over the past year. The fact that Heel & Toe is the only charity in our region to offer free conductive education and that they actually receive no government funding, makes me more determined to help them in any way I can.”
“Stanley Travel is a local family-run business and we feel it is important to show our support, not only to a charity on our doorstep, but also to one where we could see we were making a difference. I am looking forward to becoming even more involved in the charity and to carry on doing whatever I can, whenever I can to support them.”
