The team at Cerebra stop by to share details of their upcoming Children’s Awards…
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the 2013 Cerebra Children’s Awards, recognising the amazing achievements of children with neurological conditions and brain injury.
Cerebra is a national charity supporting children and families who live with acquired brain injury and neurological conditions such as autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, among any number of others. We hold the Children’s Awards every year to recognise the incredible achievements of these children who overcome everyday challenges to accomplish amazing things. We think they deserve to be celebrated.
This year we will be awarding eight lucky winners with an Apple iPad as well as a Cerebra trophy. To enter, all you need to do is tell us about the child you are nominating and why you think they deserve an award – it could be for their courage or bravery; for something they have achieved at home, school or in daily life; for their sense of humour or simply for being who they are. We’d also like you to tell us why an iPad would be beneficial to them. We’d love to see some photos too.
The awards are open to children aged 16 and under who have been diagnosed with a neurological condition or who have a brain injury. The closing date for nominations is Friday 6th September 2013. The winners will be chosen and presented with their prizes during the autumn, at a venue convenient to where they live.
If you know of anyone who deserves to win one of our awards we’d love to hear from you. Just complete and submit a nomination form which is available from our website www.ceebra.org.uk or from Melanie Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org / 01267 242 556.
Cerebra is a unique national charity that strives to improve the lives of children and young people with neurological conditions, through research and on-going support. Cerebra funds research into the problems arising from brain injury and disability in infants, offers services that include a postal lending library, grant scheme, regional officers and sleep counsellors. The Charity also provides a holiday home, Vallecchia, which is free to Cerebra members. The Cerebra Innovation Centre helps parents and carers access specialist equipment that is not readily available elsewhere.
Living with neurological conditions can make life very hard, not just for the child, but for their family too and we at Cerebra, with the help of our supporters, aim to make it easier.
