A STORAGE facility in Bury has thrown its support behind a charity that support children suffering from brain tumours.

Sure Store, a state-of-the-art storage facility in Pilsworth, has partnered with the Super Josh Charity, providing them with free storage space.

Joshua Wilson aka ‘SuperJosh’ was diagnosed with a brain stem brain tumour when he was just three-years-old.

Life saving brain surgery to remove the tumour left Joshua in a coma, before he then started his recovery in rehab. The complicated surgery due to the location of the brain stem left him with complex physical needs, epilepsy, scoliosis, joint and chest problems and an acquired brain injury.

Post surgery, Josh was no longer able to communicate verbally but developed his own form of communication using simple signs and facial expressions.

Josh needed 24/7 care and support for all his needs and aspects of daily life and sadly passed away in 2014.

Paul Whittaker, Director at Sure Store Bury, said: “We are delighted to be supporting this fantastic charity. As a member of the Best of Bury we met Dawn, Josh’s mum at the Made in Bury annual bowling tournament and heard her story. I knew we had to help out the SuperJosh team and the amazing work they do.

"Across the whole Sure Store Group, community initiatives and charities are areas which we feel it is so important to contribute, because these are areas which create bonds amongst local people which, especially in these difficult times, bring out the best in us all.”

Dawn Fidler, CEO of The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity and Josh’s mum added:“We are overwhelmed by the support of Sure Store Bury and we are delighted they are joining the SuperJosh family. "Their donation of free storage space will considerably reduce our monthly overheads, this means more funds going to those that need it most – our very special SuperJosh families. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
