Pupils Rally Together to Fundraise

Staff and pupils at Redland High School for Girls in Bristol have raised money for Cerebra with a week of fundraising activities.

Cerebra was nominated by one of the pupils at the school after a relative of theirs received a specially adapted trike which was funded by us. This personal experience helped to spur on fundraising efforts which were organised by the school’s Chestnut House.

Pupils held cake and jumble sales, raffles, guess the teddy competitions and the pupils’ favourite – non-uniform day.

In addition to these activities, one pupil, Danielle Beach, also decided that she would go the extra mile and do a 54 mile cycle ride! In doing so, she contributed £155 to the final fundraising total which was an impressive £989.18.

Cerebra would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who was involved with fundraising for us.

A huge well done and thank you to the team of cyclists from Carmarthen AFC.

Everyone at Cerebra would like to say thank you to the team of cyclists from Carmarthen AFC for raising over £5000 for the charity!

The team – Anthony Parnell, Ashley Williams, Ceri Rees, Emlyn Shciavone, Moira Gorman and Paul Evans – rode all the way from Holyhead to the finish in Cardiff Bay from Thursday the 26th of June to Sunday the 29th.

Meeting them at the finish line were Cerebra’s CEO Chris Jones, Head of PR & Fundraising Sian Morgan, Head of Parent Support Kelly Gadd and ambassador Sian Taylor with her son Ollie who has Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome and epilepsy.
