We've been helping to tell the story this week of five-year-old Leo White from Greater Manchester who is the first child in the world to receive a paediatric leg cover.
Leo was presented with his own Pokémon leg cover at Christmas by Mark Williams, founder of Limb-art who invented it. BBC Radio Wales and ITV News Granada interviewed Leo this week and a number of national and regional media also carried the story.
Limb-art is working with Steps Charity Worldwide, the leading charity working for all those whose lives have been affected by childhood lower limb conditions.
The charity is urgently raising funds to provide more paediatric covers to help more children. To donate please visit https://lnkd.in/gwVthDUn
Here's a video of Leo dancing with his little brother Ashley after being fitted with his Limb-art leg cover.
Leo's mum Claire said: “The Limb-art leg cover means that now Leo’s whole prosthetic limb looks incredible. It is a great way to express himself, his individuality, and a big confidence booster as he grows up."
