Disabled Teenager Takes on a Charity Run for the Seashell Trust


Daniel Snee, a 16 year old from Fixby in Huddersfield, is currently in training for a charity run to raise £2,500 for the Seashell Trust. What makes this particularly challenging for Daniel is that he has severe learning difficulties and disabilities.

Disabled Teenager Takes on a Charity Run for the Seashell Trust

A Challenge for Charity

Daniel is registered deaf blind, has autism, sensory processing dysfunction, epilepsy and no speech. He'll be doing the run as part of his silver Duke of Edinburgh award at the athletics track in Woodbank Park, Stockport.

He is a student at the Royal School Manchester, which is run by the charity Seashell Trust. The Trust helps to provide happy and secure environments for children and adults with learning disabilities. By succeeding in raising the £2,500, the Trust will be able to fund taking severely disabled children out on school trips.

Daniel's mum, Michelle, said to the Huddersfield Examiner:

"Dan has had the most amazing 3 years at the Royal School Manchester and he is fortunate to be able to give something back to his friends and community."

"He can only take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award because of the dedicated, creative and talented staff at Seashell Trust. When he was much younger, we never would have thought he would be able to achieve so much - at school and via the Duke of Edinburgh scheme - just look at him now. We are so incredibly proud of him."
