Reds in the Community are backing a fundraising campaign to help support a local boy who suffered a stroke.
Riley Hall was just six-years-old when arterial inflammation and a spontaneous vertebral arterial dissection caused a stroke that has left him with significant damage to the cerebellum in his brain.
A year on, Riley and his family are adjusting to his varying struggles in his life, including cognitive, sensory and learning problems, speech, communication and memory issues.
Alongside these mental issues, Riley also has to cope with regular aches and pains, numbness in his limbs and headaches on a daily basis.
Before his illness, Riley was a promising footballer for Redfearns Junior Football Club, who have continued to support the youngster and his family through this challenging period.
As a way of thanking Redfearns JFC, the family have now set up a fundraising page for the club to help fund a renovation of the club house.
They will be doing this through a sponsored bike ride in July from Flamborough Head on the East Coast to Redfearns, a distance of over 85 miles!
Redfearns will also be hosting a fun day on Saturday 14th July from 13:30-18:00.
A renovation to the club house would further help Riley as he looks to get involved with the club once again.
