A special gift
In the early 1990s, one couple made a special gift that we will always be grateful for; a £30 gift that secured the original premises for Cerebral Palsy Cymru (then known as Bobath Cymru). This gift was made by Glenys and Bob Evans who, as part of a group of founder parents, were frustrated by having to travel to London for specialist treatment for their children. This frustration led them to make an inspirational pledge to open a specialist centre in Wales. The £30 paid the rent for the next 3 years and the centre opened in 1992.
Continue the legacy
We want to continue the legacy of that special gift and invite you, if you are able, to join the 1992 Club.
We ask you to commit to donating £30+ a month, or £360+ annually to help increase our regular income. This will help secure the charity’s future in the same way that that first £30 secured our first premises.
1992 Club benefits
In addition to the updates, we provide to our invaluable regular donors, as a member of the 1992 Club you will receive;
- an invitation to an exclusive event every year
- a copy of our Annual Review with a personal letter from our Centre Director, Jenny Carroll

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.

Being a volunteer for Cerebral Palsy Cymru means I can give something back to my community. I was a customer at Crwys road and liked the atmosphere that the manager created.
