We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our youth ambassador Myles Sketchley. Myles, age 18 suffers with Cerebral Palsy and Scoliosis and was one of the first children Strongbones helped, and we feel so privileged to have him working with us.
Myles writes a Blog for the website where he visits various locations across the uk and reports on their wheelchair access which has proved an invaluable tool for our families.
Myles has attended many events on behalf of the charity including The Strongbones Rainbow Ball, Scolio Ball, hosted a party at Hamleys toy shop on Regent Street, helped get his sister Lauren to do a Bungee Jump and has presented various cheques on behalf of the charity.
Myles runs the project called “The Myles Sketchley Award For Inspirational Children” in which Myles nominates a deserving child. Every week the winner of the award is given the coveted Myles Sketchley award medal and a cheque for £150 to spoil themselves with as they see fit.
Myles is a WellChild award winner and is has also been selected by Prime Minster Theresa May as a points of light individual for exception services to disability .
We are honoured to have Myles on the team as he is one of the bravest children we have met, so it made perfect sense for him to award other courageous child and be the voice of the children we help.
