For the past few years, income from fundraising and donations has made up more than ¾ of the funds required to run the Centre and our outreach services each year. In 2018/19, of the £1.5M we need to raise to continue to provide our services to children and families, £1.2M (79%) will need to come from donations and fundraising activities.
Therefore every gift, no matter the size, helps to make a difference at Bobath Wales. Supporters who make regular gifts to us are exceptionally important because they help us to plan services; and to be able to offer children who have cerebral palsy and their families hope and support for the long term.
Introducing the 1992 Club
In the early 1990s, Glenys and Bob Evans, founding parents of Bobath Wales, made a very important gift of £30. That gift secured the Centre in which we’re based today, and was the first financial gift that helped to establish the Charity.
In June 1992, 19 Park Road in Whitchurch, Cardiff opened its doors. That year, the Charity supported approximately 40 children. Last year, we supported 489 children and families, and delivered 1,744 sessions of specialist therapy.
Regular donations are vital to Bobath Wales because they help us to plan our services for children and families.
To mark Glenys and Bob’s gift, we would like to invite those of you who are able to join the very special 1992 Club. Members will be donors who give £30 or more per month (or £360+ in an annual gift).
