Dozens of people chose to cycle, skate or walk around Rockingham Speedway to help a 12-year-old boy raise funds for a sensory room at his old school.

Family and friends joined Jordan Hutchison, who has cerebral palsy, for the three-mile event around the Corby circuit on Tuesday evening.

The fundraiser was to help Jordan raise £4,000 for a sensory room at Studfall Junior School where he used to attend.

Jordan’s mum Jacqueline said: “It went well and we raised £385.

“Jordan did six miles and he was happy that he had done it.

“We had about 70 people there.

“This is our first event, but we are going to do another one.”

Jordan from Corby has a fundraising page where he talks about the cerebral palsy and how it affects his life.

He describes how it affects all four limbs of his body and it is a struggle for him in everyday life.

But Jordan, described as a ‘determined’ boy by his mum, also says on his Go Fund Me page: “It doesn’t hold me back, I’ll try anything.

“I learnt to walk at the age of 10.

“I still use my walking frame and fall over all the time, but I will not give up.”

Jordan, who won the courage award at our Pride In Northamptonshire awards last year, is appealing for support to help him reach his target of £4,000 for a sensory room for disabled children at his former school.
