Jessica's Story 

Jessica Hughes – was inspired by CPM 
 
“I first connected with Cerebral Palsy Midlands in 2013 when I was in my final year at University. I volunteered to take part in devising a piece of theatre which would be performed in the community - CPM was one of the organisations in which we performed. 
 
The friendly atmosphere at CPM and the warmth and joy among the service users was tangible and unforgettable. A few years later, I came to the CPM Summer Sizzler and garden opening and felt the same joy I had previously. What CPM do is fabulous and it would be a great detriment to the community if they were unable to continue their amazing work. I understand how vital and necessary services like CPM are from my previous work with people with additional needs and I hope that the small amount I have raised will help in some way.“
