Thank you to our cycling champions! 
A big thanks to these two men who keep giving and doing majorly heroic things for charities like us. Here are our Mondelez International (Cadbury's Bournville) Community Champions Michael Huggins and Steve Davies as they set out yesterday to cycle 100 miles for their chosen charities in the Birmingham Velo Race; Acorns Hospice, Cerebral Palsy Midlands, Sandwell Advocacy, Macmillan Cancer Support and Primrose Hospice. They have raised £300 for Cerebral Palsy Midlands and are looking to get a further £200 cash matched from Mondelez International to give them a total figure of £500! Thank you to Steve and Michael - we don't know how you do it! 
Brandhall Community Choir and BUGS Ukulele Group concert raised an amazing £410.26! 
Brandhall Community Choir and BUGS Ukulele Strummers performed at Brandhall Labour Club to raise money for Cerebral Palsy Midlands (CPM) on Friday 26th April 2019. 
With a lot of thought into organising the evening and selling tickets as well as local community support with raffle prizes they raised an incredible £410.26 on the evening and CPM are incredibly thankful. 
CPM took a small group along on the evening to enjoy the performance and Centre Manager Gary Watson gave a speech about our charity and the great work that we do, delivering a service to our disabled adult citizens. We are so very grateful to have this support from community groups like Brandhall Community Choir and BUGS Ukulele Group. It really does go along way.  
They are not just our supporters but certainly good friends of our charity, always offering to support our cause in anyway they can. In April Brandhall Community Choir came and joined in our fun WheelnWalk sponsored walk, singing at The Bandstand in Cannon Hill Park and making everyone feel happy as they sang around the park, all bright and cheery. 
The concert had a lot of support from local community groups, they sold raffle tickets on the evening with many many prizes to win. Everyone had a really enjoyable evening and it was a brilliant way for us as a charity to raise awareness as well as fundraising. 
We want to thank all the members of the Brandhall Community Choir, BUGS Ukulele Strummers, to those who donated raffle prizes as well as everyone that attended the evening. 
Gary has managed to raise an incredible £97 in sponsorship by asking people around and handing out flyers about the Wheel 'n' Walk event to everyone! This is a fantastic achievement!! So far he is the biggest fundraiser for the Wheel'n'Walk event and we have a chocolate hamper to give out to the person or family or team that raises the most for this years Wheel'n'Walk - so Gary this could well be yours! 
At last years 'Wheel'n'Walk' Gary covered a distance of seven miles last year, and this year he is going to break his record! "Everyone is involved in this years walk from the centre and the money we raise helps keep it going. It's fun and the right thing to do." 
This years Wheel'n'Walk event takes place Sunday 7th April at Cannon Hill Park. Find out how you can get registered
