Finley has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 2

SMA is a rare degenerative neuromuscular condition which leaves Finley unable to sit or stand without support. He cannot walk, his arms, hand, head and neck movement and breathing are affected and he is unable to swallow.

But for all this, he is a bright and happy 5yr old with a huge zest for life, and drives himself to mainstream school in his powered wheelchair.

He and his family live in Haddenham and try to live as normally as possible, but this cannot be done without specialised equipment and therapies beyond the realms of the NHS. All proceeds from the Ska Souls gig will go towards ongoing equipment and therapies.

Says Liz Davies, Finley's grandmother: "A big thank you to everyone, not least to the wonderful SkaSouls and The Rivets Sports & Social Club."
