The Cadbury Foundation have donated £3,000 to make a real difference and support a local Birmingham charity Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) with their health and wellbeing development for adults with substantial or critical need. Mondelez International employee Malcolm Lilly, daughter of Victoria Lilly who attends the centre, nominated CPM for the Cadbury Foundation grant as a worthwhile charity close to his heart. 
Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) are a community day centre for adults with cerebral palsy and other related conditions, they were successful in their grant application for their bespoke work they do to actively improve the lives of their clients. CPM Centre Manager Gary Watson said “It was a great pleasure for our nomination to The Cadbury Foundation to be successful and this means we really can help our clients in sustaining better health and getting the support that they need. We will continue to grow our LIFE Skills centre with nutrition and wellbeing advice as well as healthy eating and cookery activities. We will be continuing our garden development to grow more fresh produce and will also continue with physical activity workshops in our centre that involve movement, dance, horse riding, Tai Chi to overall promote a better and informative service for our clients.” 
Cerebral Palsy Midlands will plan a weekly programme of activity so that citizens can grow their own fruit and vegetables in their new accessible garden facilities. All of the vegetables grown will be used to cook within their very own accessible LIFE SKILLS Kitchen suite facility. Our citizens will be encouraged to think about their healthy eating and planning nutritious meals. We will continue with Qigong Tai Chi classes that take place weekly at the centre with our tutor Sally Haynes-Preece from Krystal Wolf Holistic Care. She works with a large group of citizens from our centre and focusses on improving the health and wellbeing of our service users. Everyone, whatever their ability, is able to participate in this activity.
