PACE is a family-centred charity which provides an education for children with sensory motor disorders.

The pre-school is based in Aylesbury and the family believe it is important their son, who has cerebral palsy, goes there.

Katie, 31, said: “We wanted to hold an event to raise money to send Freddie to their pre-school, they do a lot of good things for the children. The centre specialises in the care that Freddie needs and it will help him.”

Kristel Flitton, a family friend, said: “PACE offer an environment for Freddie and his parents where they can meet new people and he can make friends. Since he has been going to groups, he has tried new activities and he is learning how to walk as well.”

The parents, who also have 12 week old twins, will be hosting the fun day at Great Brickhill Cricket Club.

Mrs Gray added: “We did not expect the event to be as big as it is, people have been so generous and everyone wants to help, we are so grateful.”
