Cerebral Palsy, a lifelong condition affecting mobility and movement, hasn’t and won’t hold ambitious fundraiser Charlie Holland back from defying the barriers of his condition and raising cash for charities up and down the country.
The 57-year-old from Westhead canoed a treacherous 50 mile trek across the Lancaster Canal with an ambitious team of supporters of scout groups and water sports experts. Over five days the determined team endured all weather conditions to assist Charlie in his fundraising mission.
With every muscle in his body acting against him, practical training was a necessity for this challenge of Charlie’s. The local man trained long and hard on the rower in the gym working on his strength and endurance to prepare him for the journey.
