Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney leave parents of boy, 4, 'blown away' by gesture
The parents of a disabled four-year-old have been "blown away" after receiving a £10,000 donation from Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney to adapt their home.
Aaron and Charlotte Perrin's son Louis was born with a rare genetic condition called TUBA1A, which causes him to have painful leg spasms, limited mobility, epilepsy and cerebral palsy.
Despite this, Louis has always remained positive and loves watching football matches, especially when his favourite team Wrexham AFC plays. His parents were "shocked" to see a £10,000 donation on their fundraising page from the club's owners on Friday, to help towards adapting their home in Wrexham.
Mrs Perrin, 32, who works in the emergency services, told the PA news agency: "Louis' carer screenshotted the donation page and was like, 'oh my God, look at that', and then I tried to get in touch with my husband."
Mr Perrin, 32, who is a headteacher, added: "I was at work and was sitting in the staff room and saw I had two missed calls from Charl and then a message from one of my governors saying, 'have you seen this?'
"I couldn't contain it; I just told everyone in work straight away. We were all amazed and so pleased and we've had friends ringing and crying on the phone.
"We were totally blown away by their generosity really; we were just in shock."
The family hope to raise £40,000 to fit a downstairs bedroom with an attached wet room and raise the level in the garden to make it easier for Louis to move from the home to the garden, among other things.
"We've gone through two sets of plans with the local council and there has been no funding available due to the cost of the project, so to see the community donate, it has given us more hope that we are going to achieve our target," Mr
