Mornflake is supporting gym-goers in their bid to fund a new wheelchair for Cheshire Paralympic hero Andy Small.
Andy, 23, won a bronze medal at the Rio Paralympic Games in September narrowly missing out on silver by a tenth of a second.
Self-funded, he had to borrow a chair to race and a fundraising campaign has been launched to buy him his own chair in time for the London Championships next June.
He trains at Simply Gym in Crewe and we supported his pals by offering an extra-large Mornflake hamper prize to a raffle taking place during a fundraising coffee morning.
Our brand manager Hannah Smith said: “Like his friends at the gym, we are amazed by Andy’s determination and courage. It was a pleasure to meet him at the coffee morning.”
Like most sportsmen and women, Andy starts his day off with porridge oats and we’re sponsoring his breakfasts over the next few months.
Andy, who was born with cerebral palsy, clocked a personal best time of 17.96 seconds in the men’s 100m wheelchair racing final at Rio. Of his experience he said: “I was very proud to pull on the GB kit, it’s something that very few people get to do.”
Donations to Andy’s new wheelchair can be made via his page on www.gofundme.com
