The life of a little boy who suffers from a rare genetic disorder has just got a little easier – thanks to help from a Sudbury company.

Zachary Pryke has an incredibly rare form of epilepsy, called Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

As a result, he suffers multiple seizures every day and requires round-the-clock care from his mum and dad, Annie and Paul.

In order to help Zachary, the couple recently moved to a larger home in Great Waldingfield, which fits closer with Zachary’s needs, giving him a bedroom on the ground floor.

Unfortunately, the property’s flooring needed to be able to cope with the weight of Zachary’s wheelchair – a renovation that was proving too expensive for the family.

Determined to get Zachary the help he needed, his grandmother, Therese Harris, approached Topps Tiles in Sudbury to see if the company could help.

“When we heard about Zachary’s story, we were keen to help as much as possible,” said commercial director Brian Linnington.

“We offered to help by providing the downstairs flooring and suggested natural oak, which is incredibly durable and therefore suited their needs perfectly.”
