A BURNLEY firm has raised more than £1,000 for nine-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer Theo Bishop.

PVC-U window manufacturers VEKA raised the cash for the Rawtenstall youngster, who recently had a life-changing operation in America, which has enabled him to walk more freely, but he still faces continuing physiotherapy and further trips to America, both of which require funding.

Dave Jones, MD of the VEKA UK Group, met Theo to present the cheque.

He said: “Theo’s obviously a very brave young man and here at VEKA we are very happy to have helped contribute to his family’s amazing fundraising efforts.”
