The Alexis Ruthven Trust
The Alexis Ruthven Trust have reached their target of £50,000!
In June 2015 The Alexis Ruthven Trust was created to raise £50,000 to fund building alterations to meet a little boy’s basic living needs as well as further equipment he will need as his condition progresses. The discretionary trust was set up with assistance from David Watson at Norton Peskett Solicitors.
Alexis lives in Suffolk with his three younger sisters and has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a progressive muscle wasting condition for which there is currently no treatment and no cure. Sufferers lose the ability to walk before their teens, and have a life expectancy of mid-late 20’s.
Alexis is now enjoying his new ground floor bedroom and a fully accessible wetroom which has allowed Alexis to have greater independence while he’s able to.
