Ataxia is the name given to a group of neurological disorders that affect balance co-ordination and speech.
At the age of 9 my sister was diagnosed with Fredriachs ataxia . This ataxia is genetic and extremely debilitating disease. Whilst my sister cannot walk and her speech and co-ordination is affected. She has always been strong and showed determination even absailing in her wheelchair. She is such an inspiration.

In the UK there are approx 10,000 adults and 500 children with progressive ataxia

Ataxia UK is a recognised charity that helps provide support to those affected by Ataxia. It also supports research into finding treatments and hopefully one day a cure.

I hope I can raise a wee bit if money to support this great charity. Any small donation would be so appreciated.

Many thanks in advance
