Caped Crusaders Unite for the Superhero Tri!

Last year, we entered a team of brave superheroes in the very first Superhero Triathlon. The event was a huge success and so this year the Super Hero Series is back and better than ever.

Founded by Super Paralympian Sophie Warner, it’s “the UK’s one and only disability sports series for the Everyday Superhero!”

Cerebra is proud to announce we are once again supporting this epic triathlon as charity friends and will be  Team Cerebra!

This year’s event is taking place on the 18th of August 2018 at Dorney Lake, Windsor. Participants can team up, grab a side kick or fly solo to compete in any of the four unique challenges.

Rhys and Anthony, who took part in the triathlon for us last year will once again be rising to the challenge! We’re looking for eager super heroes who want to join them on team Cerebra. The only requirement is that one person on your team must have a disability and you must have your own equipment to take part in the triathlon.

If you would like to find out any further information about the event or how you can join our team contact mariak@cerebra.org.uk.

Samuel is our Star Volunteer!

Samuel and Angel

Samuel and Angel

In 2017 we welcomed Samuel Turner to team Cerebra as a volunteer and Samuel, his family and friend Angel Jolly have done us proud!

They have held bake sales to raise both money and vital awareness to Cerebra and have even visited HQ so they could meet Cerebra staff.

Always eager to spread the word about Cerebra, Samuel recently spoke about us in an interview with his local radio station, Gateway 97.8 FM. He has also been doing a lot of fundraising in the run up to Christmas, along with Angel.

Samuel is also extremely creative and has made a number of videos to promote how he feels about Cerebra, including the special Christmas one which you can see below.

To date, Samuel has raised a fantastic £425 for Cerebra but has also been a positive representative for us, receiving praise from everyone he meets whilst in the community.

One lady that met Samuel while he was fundraising told us: “Whilst I was having my lunch with my little girl who is 3 I got chatting to a lovely man called Sam and his friend Angel. He interacted with my daughter and was such a pleasure to chat with.

He told me a lot about your charity and told me about why he got involved. He is an absolute treasure to your charity and explained everything about your charity even quoting your website address. This young man needs to be praised as a lovely person and I wanted you to know you are lucky to have him working for your charity!”

We do feel extremely lucky to have him on board. Thank you for everything you have done this year Samuel!

James’ trike ride is a winner!

James on his trike

James on his trike

Nine year old James Miles is our latest fundraising Superhero! James raised an incredible £512 for Cerebra so that we can support other children who are living with cerebral palsy.

James spent the summer holidays training for his challenge and, at the end of September, set off on a two mile ride on his specially adapted trike. James showed true determination to complete the ride, which was a huge achievement for him.

His mum Kathryn said “We were overcome by how generous everyone was at the end of last year to enable James to have this fantastic trike and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, he has loved riding it. But now it is James’ turn to give something back so we are hoping you can help James raise money for Cerebra”.

Gareth receives a cheque from James

Gareth Owens from Cerebra recently paid a visit to a special school assembly where he met James and his mum and received a cheque for a whopping £512.

Thank you James – your support means that we can help more families who have children with a brain condition to discover a better life together.
