Midnight walk call for women.

A MUM is appealing for women to take part in this year's Midnight Walk in aid of Acorns.

Nita Tailor from Solihull knows first-hand the support Acorns provide to help cope with the huge physical and emotional challenges that families of life limited children face every day.

Her 14-year-old son Pavan has Multiple Sulphatase Deficiency; a rare genetic condition that seriously affects his mobility and speech.

He cannot sit up and cannot turn in bed and doesn't sleep through the night. There is no treatment or cure.

Acorns has relieved the pressure on the family for the nearly ten years, looking after Pavan and giving Nita and her husband precious respite from the 24/7 demands of looking after a life limited child.

September 17 will see 1,500 women give up sleep for one night to be part of Midnight Walk.

The 10km wheelchair friendly circular route around Birmingham City Centre starts in Victoria Square.
