Inspirational youngster Kenan Wilkes – who has cerebral palsy – is hoping his dream of having a custom-made bike will soon come true.
The brave 11-year-old, whose condition affects his arms and legs, is having an operation later this month and his parents Samantha and Mark, of Churchfield Mews, Castleford, are raising money to buy the £2,000 bike which will help his recovery.
Mrs Wilkes said: “We just thought he has never had bike and has always wanted one so we are raising money to buy him a custom built one.
“He is having a big operation on his right leg at the end of February and he will need intensive physiotherapy after that.
“We don’t know what the exact procedure is going to be yet ,but he is a little fighter.”
“We have been told the bike will help with his recovery.
The Park Road Junior School pupil is set to go to Castleford Academy in September.
