Meet the team from Zurich
Last year the floor in our Barry charity shop had become damaged. We had to close the shop and were looking at several weeks before we could get a company in to redecorate after the new floor had been laid. The team from Zurich stepped in and got it done no time which meant we could re-open the shop much earlier than we had planned. Gareth Richards from Zurich said:
It was our pleasure and happy to do anything to help, it was extra special for me to be able to help as my Nephew has cerebral palsy and has had treatment at the therapy centre. My sister said you guys are remarkable for the work you do, so it was nice to be able to give a little something back. I know the guys had a great time and you were so accommodating and couldn’t of done enough for us.

The early intervention programme, has been such a comfort to us as we were doing something positive from pretty much day one for Sienna. The support and comfort that Cerebral Palsy Cymru provides means that the therapy doesn’t just stop with the child who receives it, the whole family benefits.

Bobath to me means I can give something back to my community. I was a customer at Crwys road and liked the atmosphere that the manager created. The volunteers are happy and the manager is kind-hearted and good with everyone so when I got the opportunity to volunteer my first choice was Bobath.
Each visit to Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s therapy centre in Cardiff meant a 130-mile round trip to get to the centre but it was well worth it. The sessions were a great tool and taught us how to help Ffion and how to continue with her physiotherapy at home.
