The Big Give 2021
The Big Give Christmas Challenge is BACK! And this year, it’s bigger than ever.
For the past 3 years, we have been lucky enough to take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge and last year we raised £11,300 to help fund our early intervention service ‘Better Start, Better Future’. This year, we have decided to set ourselves an even more ambitious target and hope to raise £20,000 to provide specialist therapy to 34 babies next year who have or who are at high risk of having cerebral palsy.
Why have we decided to set ourselves such an ambitious target?
Quite simply, over the past year we have seen an unprecedented demand for our services with 63 new babies having been referred to us since January. Every 6 hours, a baby is born in the UK who will have cerebral palsy and we know that there will be babies born in Wales over the Christmas season who will need our specialist therapy and support.
This is why we need your support to help us raise £20,000 in just 7 days.
From 12pm on 30th November – 12pm on 7th November every donation made to our campaign via the Big Give will be DOUBLED.
Thanks to the generous support of the Hospital Saturday Fund and our long-standing supporter Derek Redwood, our match funding pot transforms every £5 into £10, £25 into £50, £100 into £200… Christmas magic!
Visit our campaign page on The Big Give Christmas Challenge website to double your donation this Christmas and help us make a life-changing difference to 34 little lives by supporting our Better Start, Better Future campaign.

When we completed our first baby block of 6 weeks of therapy at Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s therapy centre it was a life-changer. We are truly grateful to have found such help and guidance amongst the darkness, we can now look forward to the future, thanks to Cerebral Palsy Cymru.

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.
