Cerebra recently received a donation of £3000 from the Hospital Saturday Fund.

The cheque was presented at a special reception hosted at Cardiff University recently. In total, almost £80,000 was donated to twenty two charities at the event, which was the Fund’s first charity reception in Wales.

Cerebra received the donation to help towards the work of the Innovation Centre which provides research and design into bespoke equipment for children with brain related conditions.

Paul Jackson, Chief Executive of the Hospital Saturday Fund said: “We are delighted to hold our first charity reception in Wales and support many charities in the area, a number of which are less well-known. The Hospital Saturday Fund is honoured to support the efforts of such deserving charities and help in some way towards the exceptional, tireless work that they do.”

The Hospital Saturday Fund is a registered Charity whose aims are to provide assistance through its charitable funds for individuals with a medical condition or disability who would benefit from assistance with the purchase of specialised equipment or from practical forms of treatment; registered health charities such as hospitals, hospices, medical organisations who are in need of grants for medical projects, care, research or support of medical training.

In 2015 the Fund will give £850,000 in grants to medical charities for care and research, hospices and hospitals across the UK and Ireland. Assistance will also be given to individuals whose illness or disability has caused financial difficulties.

Cerebra is very grateful to the Hospital Saturday Fund for its support.
