Poppy Jones and her Dad Rob
On 26th June 2016 Poppy Jones and her dad Rob took part in the Cardiff Triathlon together to raise money for Cerebra. They faced an additional challenge – eleven year old Poppy has cerebral palsy and Rob pushed/pulled her around the course using custom made equipment specially designed by the Cerebra Innovation Centre – using Loopwheels!
Cerebra funds research into the problems arising from brain injury and disability in infants, offers services that include a postal lending library, grant scheme, regional officers and sleep practitioners. The Charity also provides a holiday home to Cerebra members. The Cerebra Innovation Centre helps parents and carers access specialist equipment that is not readily available elsewhere. Living with neurological conditions can make life very hard, not just for the child, but for their family too and the people at Cerebra, with the help of our supporters, aim to make it easier.
