The team from the Cerebra Innovation Centre (CIC) recently visited Leckey and Firefly in Belfast to receive a royalty cheque for £23,199.

Some products originally designed by the CIC team are being manufactured and sold by Leckey, who specialise in a variety of positioning equipment for children with special needs.

Royalties are given to Cerebra every time they sell any of the products designed by CIC. These include GoTo seats, Scoot seats, and the supermarket “fixed” GoTo seat.

Ross Head from CIC said:  “We are so proud to be involved with these amazing products. We could never have hoped to have made something so successful when we designed the first prototypes all those years ago. Our collaboration with Leckey and Firefly has been amazing, the guys in Belfast are so kind and accommodating and share our passion to help. It is not about the money for any of us, we all just want to see kids being included into everyday life, but we cannot deny that the money Leckey give us allows us to continue the amazing work that we are blessed to be able to do. The money contributes directly to new and exciting product concepts to help children and also to high level research that will enable us to be more effective in finding solutions for more children. I love my job and am lucky to be surrounded by such a dedicated team.”
