Coronation Street’s Steven Arnold meets Apex HSC Client Andy Walker

Andy Walker and Steven Arnold met at an Apex HSC care awareness event.

Steven Arnold might be known throughout the nation as Ashley Peacock, but to Apex Health + Social Care he’s a valuable member of the team.

Taking time out yesterday to meet Apex Health + Social Care client Andy Walker, Steven heard how he had suffered a C4/C5 spinal cord injury following a diving accident in Goa six years ago and was left paraylsed from Neck down.

The pair had something in common too – Andy once was a cast member of Emmerdale, playing Steve Kelly, introduced to the role by the Back-Up Trust. Andy doesn’t let his disability control him, and like his character on ‘the other soap’ he has not let this deter him from continuing to live a full and adrenaline filled life.

Steven made the visit as part of a series of events he has helped organise with Apex HSC over the summer to raise awareness of care and support in the community.

He said of the meeting:

“It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to meet with such an inspirational man as Andy Walker.

“We can all learn a lot from his determination to lead a full and rewarding life, having faced the massive task of adapting to a new situation and overcoming new challenges.”

Steven Arnold’s support for Apex Health + Social Care this summer will see him meeting a range of clients in receipt of care and support in the community as well as attending a number of events to raise awareness of these services and give people the chance to meet and chat with a real household name.

Apex Sponsor “Brief Encounter” Event for The Christie

The Christie Charitable Fund paired with Cancer Care Therapies on the 27th May 2012  to raise funds at their “Brief Encounter” event.

£4128.74 was raised in total, with the money going towards the Complementary Therapy team at The Christie which offers a range of therapies to help alleviate the physical and emotional effects experienced by cancer patients and their carers.

Attendees had the chance to view the classic film “Brief Encounter” as they would have on the day of its first release – with pots of tea, a live organist and period-perfect newsreel.

The event was extremely well attended, and Apex HSC have received a certificate of thanks for sponsoring the afternoon and helping to raise money for such a worthy cause.

Apex HSC would like to thank all who attended “Matinée at the Plaza – ‘Brief Encounter’” for making it such a success.Links:
