Welcome to Freddie's Friends

We have set up this charity in memory of our beautiful boy Freddie Appleyard, who fell asleep on December 30th 2008, aged 2 years and 4 months. Freddie was born with a rare brain disorder which meant that he had lots of problems, including Epilepsy, Hemiplegia, global delays and was registered partially sighted. Initially Freddie was a happy little boy who loved eating mashed potato, drinking lots of milk and watching his television programmes. He would play for hours in the bath and enjoyed nothing more than sitting in his wheelchair and going for a long walk!
