Sponsor Popsy and Posey’s 12-Month Challenge for the Stroke Association and Spinal Injuries Association

Sponsor Popsy and Posey for the Spinal Injuries Association and the Stroke Association

Maxiflow customer Mr Buckler has brought this very worthy cause to our attention and we wanted to share it with our followers.

Mr Buckler’s daughter Rose and her friend Tracy (known collectively as Popsy and Posey) are undertaking a 12-month challenge to raise money for two excellent charities – the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) and the Stroke Association.

These charities are very close to the hearts of both women, as explained below:

In 2008, after being rushed in to hospital in the middle of the night Tracy’s Mum (Linda) was eventually diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. This resulted in Linda becoming paralysed from the waist down. After spending 6 months in hospital and rehabilitation she returned home and began to adapt to life in a wheelchair. Throughout her stay in Southport Spinal Unit the SIA were always there to offer her support and advice.

Rose’s grandfather (John) suffered a stroke in October 2012. This was an awful experience for John and Rose’s gran Hilda who within a matter of moments were facing an uncertain future together and the family faced life-changing decisions. Fortunately John has recovered well, but this has made us all very aware of the fantastic work the Stroke Association do to support stroke victims and fund research that will ensure more sufferers can make the best possible recovery.

Popsy & Posey

To raise money, Popsy and Posey are embarking upon a multitude of challenges each month in the lead-up to their 30th birthdays. From gruelling physical endurance trials and sporting events through to bake sales and coffee mornings, the team are covering all bases in order to reach as wide an audience as possible.

We at Maxiflow have contributed towards a Charity Fundraising Night on Saturday 22nd June at the University of Cumbria (formerly St. Martin’s College) in Lancaster.
