Last weekend at CadburyWorld, Bournville, the popular family venue was set up and decorated all things Halloween as part of a clever fundraising strategy from Mondelez International Community Champions Steve Davies and Michael Huggins. Their Halloween Fundraiser saw them raise a fantastic £2963 for their chosen charities and Cerebral Palsy Midlands is lucky enough to be a charity partner. 
 
This kind of activity is a great way for our community champions to raise awareness about all the great work we do at Cerebral Palsy Midlands and to raise money towards supporting our services. We are, as always, incredibly grateful for the effort and work that our two champions put in to continue supporting our charity, they always go the extra mile or go the full hog in fancy dress! They really are an incredible pair of supporters! 
 
 
Our friends and amazing Mondelez International (Cadbury's Bournville) Community Champions Michael Huggins and Steve Davies have undertaken another amazing and challenging cycling race! 
 
Yesterday, Sunday 4th August, the cycling pair of super heroes completed the "Prudential Ride London" , which undertakes a difficult course around Greater London covering 100 miles! Thousands of cyclists had taken to the streets and Michael and Steven were amongst them, cycling for their chosen charities, including; Cerebral Palsy Midlands, Sandwell Advocacy, Primrose Hospice, Acorns Children's Hospital and Macmillan Cancer Research. 
 
The route sets off from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park before entering Surrey at Hampton Court. 
 
Riders then headed west so far as Ripley and East Clandon before returning to the capital via the rolling Surrey Hills for the finish on The Mall. Michael said he was proudly waving his Villa Flag at The Mall towards the end. Its another amazing achievement they have completed that we, at Cerebral Plasy Midland,s are extremely proud of. We don't know how they have the energy!

Cycling to help five great charitable causes, our friend and Mondelez Community Champion Michael Huggins will be cycling from Villa Park this Sunday 26th May finishing at Wemley stadium on Monday 27th May. 
Whether your an Aston Villa Football Club fan or not, you've got to admit this cycle is definetely challenging and he definately deserves some support?! Well we at Cerebral Palsy Midlands definately think so. 
 
Michael is cycling to raise awareness support and fundraise for his five top nominated charities this year; 
Acorns Children’s Hospice 
Sandwell Advocacy 
Primrose Hospice 
Macmillan Cancer Research 
 
Michael had made the commitment before their last played match that if Aston Villa FC won West Bromwich Albion he was going to set off for an ambitious cycle to Wembley Stadium for the Aston Villa play off final. AND they did win 1-0 securing their place in the finals and leaving Michael with a huge challenge ahead! 
 
The journey has been split in to two parts to ensure his arrival for the start of the match, Sunday, Michael will cycle to Milton Keynes (70 miles), stay over for the night and then cycle to Wembley Stadium (50 miles) on Bank Holiday Monday. 
 
To follow his progress Michael said; 
"The best way to follow my progress will be on Twitter @michaelah1874 but I must warn you in advance that on Sunday you will most likely see photos of me stopping in coffee shops along the route tucking into a carrot cake than me banging out the miles😂 
 
On Monday if I have not put on too much weight I will be pushing the speed a bit more as I hope to arrive on Wembley Way between 11am and 12pm." 
 
Mondelez Community Champions Michael Huggins and Steve Davies are happy to report that they have now completed The Ride Across Britain, that is to say, they have cycled 1000 miles all the way from Lands End Cornwall up to John O'Groats in Scotland over 9 days. 
 
Michael said "We are both very thankful for all the support you have given us. It's been an amazing experience one we will never forget." 
 
The pair set out to raise £1,000 for each of their seven magnificent charities, with Cerebral Palsy Midlands being one of them. They have so far raised an amazing £1,115.29 for our charity alone and we are so thankful for their support. 
 
Their fundraising doesn't end here as their giving pages will remain open until December 2017 and you can still donate here. Steve is also running in the Birmingham marathon so every support we can give him is very much needed.
