Supporters of both the Invicta Dynamos and Chelmsford Chieftains helped raise a fantastic £500 for the Paige Stewart Appeal on Sunday night as the club held a collection at the rink during the top of the table clash.
4 year old Paige Stewart suffers from Periventricular Leukomalacia (PVL) – a condition that causes her severe pain and leaves her unable to walk on her own. The treatment is an operation called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy that locates and cuts the nerve endings causing the discomfort eventually leading to rehabilitation of both legs whilst easing the suffering caused by the illness. Unfortunately the procedure is not currently funded by the NHS and so Paige’s family are desperately trying to raise the £40k required to help make her walk – an everyday activity many take for granted but a long-time dream for young Paige.
Now, thanks to the generosity of both Invicta Dynamos and travelling Chelmsford Chieftains fans, the Paige Stewart Appeal is £500 closer to their cause having held a collection at the rink during Sunday’s league fixture. Both the club and the family of Paige Stewart would like to thank all the supporters and players who kindly donated on the night – with your help Paige is closer to achieving her dream and overcoming this illness.
Thank you to the @ChelmChieftains & @InvictaDynamos fans for helping us raise money for Paige so she can walk!!! #paigetowalk
