A NORTHWICH building society is hoping to raise vital funds to buy a pair of prosthetic blades for a schoolboy who had both legs amputated when he was a baby.
Cieran Kelso, eight, contracted meningococcal meningitis in June 2006 and lost both legs below the knee and most of his fingers.
Staff at Skipton Building Society, on Leicester Street, will be taking part in a number of fundraising activities tomorrow, Thursday October 24, in the hope of raising as much as possible to help buy young Cieran prosthetic blades.
Branch manager Rachel Hayes said: “We will be holding a cake sale, doing face painting and nail painting.
“It is for the kids while they’re off and we’re trying to raise as much as we can for Cieran.”
To take part in Skipton’s fundraising efforts, or to donate, pop into the store between 10am and 2pm on Thursday.
