A charity shop is currently open with the Hildreds Centre in Skegness to help raise vital funds towards a local man’s new custom-built wheelchair.

Steven Huckle needs £12,500 for a new wheelchair which will vastly improve his mobility.

Currently his parents have helped to raise £8,000 towards the total through a number of fundraisers.

And they hope to nudge that figure closer to the total during this week’s charity shop - which opened on Monday and will run right through until Sunday.

Steven says he is very proud of his mum, dad and sister for all their tireless efforts.

His parents are also keen to thank the many people who have donated or helped out so far, including Murray’s News in Lumley Road in Skegness, which has been holding collections and putting promotional posters in its window for months.

The campaign is already gearing up for other fundraisers, including a charity bowls event that is still being finalised and a Halloween Family Party in The Highwayman on November 2 between 7pm and 10pm.
