Over 200 families recently enjoyed an exciting day out to Birmingham’s ThinkTank with Cerebra and Regional Officer Jenny Maher. Parents of children with brain conditions were given free entry to the award-winning science museum, as well as tickets to the planetarium cinema.

Families were able to interact with over 200 hands-on exhibitions from steam engines and talking robots through to the human body and a chocolate wrapping machine. The attraction was chosen for its accessibility and appeal for children with a range of disabilities and learning difficulties.

Cerebra staff were on hand to give out tickets and ensure fast-track access to ThinkTank. They were also helped by ThinkTank staff who gave out maps and directions, as well as recommending different attractions based to suit all tastes.

Some of the feedback from the day:

“Once we arrived the Cerebra Staff were very friendly and professional.”

“We all had a fabulous day out.”

“We had a marvelous day. No queuing and straight into the planetarium. Very impressive and we are ever so grateful. Free parking too with a blue badge and access was fab.”

“We found it to be well organised once we arrived.  We appreciated the information given and found it to be well sign posted. ThinkTank itself was large enough to hold the kids attention but not so big that it tired out our son as he finds walking long distances difficult.  We are definitely planning to visit again.”

“We had a really good day. Staff had time to talk to parents regarding other issues as well. I would recommend your services to others.”

“I wanted to say a big thank you: myself, my son and our friends had a great day at ThinkTank and want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to go. Everyone was helpful.”
