Bobath Wales chosen charity for local motorcycle club

Bobath Wales has been chosen as Charity of the Year for the Blue Knignts Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (LEMC) Wales 1 Chapter.

President Andy Stone and Vice President Steve Bendell are full of great ideas and ways of raising money throughout the year.

They said, “The Blue Knights LEMC Wales 1 Motorcycle Club has historically supported local charities and are pleased to have selected Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre to be their designated charity for 2018.   Four charities were nominated by members for consideration.  Bobath Wales was proposed by a member of the club who knew of the charity through a family member who’d benefited from therapy at the centre.  Members of the group voted on the nominations and chose Bobath Wales, as it’s a smaller local charity and needs the support.”

The group has started the new year with a charity diet but they’ll also be taking part in the Bobath Wales Annual Summer Fete on the 9th June 2018.

“We are undertaking a number of money raising activities throughout the year and have set up a Virgin Money Giving page for donations.  The main event will be a bike ride on the 30th June 2018 meeting at Cardiff East Services by 9am where there will be a briefing at 9:15am. The group will ride into the Centre in the Grounds of Velindre Hospital where there will be registration and other fundraising activities. This will be followed by a group ride to The Owl’s Nest Tea Rooms at Llandovery for refreshments and raffle. All proceeds go to Bobath Wales.”

Claire Brown, our Business and Events Co-Ordinator, said “As a small charity making a big difference, we always welcome support from organisations like the Blue Knights LEMC Wales 1 Motorcycle Club and wouldn’t be able to do the work that we do without them. A huge thanks to the group for choosing to support us and raise money to help children who have cerebral palsy in Wales.”
