Charlie Middleton, from Kingfisher Way, Stowmarket, suffered serious brain damage at birth, was placed on a ventilator and rushed to intensive care.
Since then he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, severe epilepsy, multiple seizures and scoliosis. He also has severe sight impairment and is fed via a tube.
Workers at the town’s PPG factory, a global supplier of paint, heard about Charlie through the Stowmarket charity, AJ’s Legacy.
So far paint staff have managed to get around half-a -dozen firms to sign up to supply materials and help build a sensory garden for Charlie.
