Charlie Lawson has completed a cyclathon to raise money for Cerebra.

On Friday 28th November Charlie Lawson from the Dorchester branch of the Halifax completed a sponsored cycle to raise funds for Cerebra. Although he be cycled from 9am to 5pm he didn’t cover a great distance as the ride took place on a stationary exercise cycle in the branch’s reception area.

Charlie raised funds for Cerebra in support of his colleague Chris Bennett, who is an Ambassador for us. Chris became involved with the charity after his son Elliott was born with Cerebral Palsy: “Myself and my wife Hannah are proud parents to Elliott. He was born 8 weeks prematurely and diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 8 months old. I found it very hard to come to terms with Elliott’s diagnosis but he is working so hard and making his own special journey in life. Cerebra have been very supportive to us and I am very proud to be a part of such an amazing charity.”

The local community got behind Charlie and he was visited by Cerebra Regional Officer Lilly Fahey and even the town crier!

So far, a fantastic £758.26 has been raised as a result of the event so Cerebra would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped.
