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.
There will be a charity motorcycle ride from the Centre on Saturday 30th June where children and families get to see the bikes. They’ll be encouraging members of the public who come along to donate as much money as possible through ‘Pay to Ride’, bucket collections and a raffle. The group will then ride to Llandovery where the raffle will be drawn.
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.”
