The Rotary Club of Astley have stepped in with a donation of £500 to help Alfie Jones, a six-year-old disabled boy who cannot walk or talk .
His mum Kerrie and dad Andrew, both 33, are trying to raise £6,500 for a specially adapted wheelchair to improve his quality of life.
Alfie Jones, of Treen Road, Astley, has cerebral palsy after suffering a bleed on his brain when born 10 weeks premature.
His parents are taking part in the 10k Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run at the end of May, to raise money for Alfies much needed manual wheelchair and have also set up a GoFundMe page.
Club members became aware of the fundraising efforts of Alfie's parents and were delighted to assist and hope that this will encourage others to help them meet their target.
