Linden Homes Helps Raise Vital Funds For Brave Louie's Operation
10 Nov 2015

Linden Homes raised almost £7,000 for ‘Footsteps for Louie’, a local Torbay campaign providing much needed funds for a life-changing operation for Louie, a three year old boy with Celebral Palsy from Torquay.

The operation in America will permanently reduce the stiffness in Louie’s legs, enabling him to walk independently. With the money now raised, Louie has a date for his operation and is having Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery on 10th November at St Louis Hospital in Missouri.

Nick Skinner, Louie’s father, said: “We are overjoyed that Louie has a date for his operation and are overwhelmed by the support shown from Linden Homes. The operation is going to be life-changing for Louie and we’re excited, scared, nervous and every other emotion rolled into one!

“You just can’t put a price on independence and being able to walk will make our little boy unbelievably happy. Thank you so very much to everyone that has helped us.”

Alison Kendall, sales and marketing director, of Linden Homes, said: “We managed to raise the money for Footsteps for Louie through a charity golf day and we’re delighted that Louie is now able to have his operation. He is a very smiley, happy, brave, little boy and we look forward to hearing all about his new adventures!”
