James’ Journey is a charity that raises money for James Simpson, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when he was born. His parents found a treatment called ABR therapy that would drastically improve his quality of life, however, this was not covered by the NHS so raising money for James was the only way to fund the treatment.
Brother of Castle Grange’s General Manager, David Gibson: “Since 2013, my brother Stephen and I have been organising charity football matches to help raise funds for James’ Journey and other local causes and have raised in excess of £50,000.
“This would not have been possible without the support from businesses like Castle Grange Technologies who have directly sponsored teams, provided players and have put us in touch with other local businesses, thereby helping to raise even more money.”
James is now 4 years old, and has successfully completed his ABR therapy. Nevertheless, David continues to support the charity by organising an 11-a-side charity football match once a year. Any money raised now contributes towards providing James with an adapted wheelchair, adapted bike, a sensory garden and anything that helps to improve his wellbeing.
This year’s football match kicked off on the 28th of May and took place at the Macron Stadium, the home of James’ favourite football club, Bolton Wanderers.
Four members of the Castle Grange team showed their support for the charity by making the journey to play in the football match: Stephen Gibson (General Manager), Matthew Povey (Admin Assistant), Josh Alexander (Marketing Manager) and Callum Brown (Apprentice Engineer).
The Castle Grange employees represented their local team, Middlesbrough FC, and wore the yellow 2015/2016 away kit. Whilst the opposing side which featured James’ father, Mark Simpson, wore Bolton’s 2015/2016 home kit. After 90 minutes of football the match ended in a 2-2 draw, but despite no side managing to come out on top it was still an unforgettable day for everybody involved.
