5th Annual CP Teens UK Ball is a huge success!

November 04, 2019

Saturday night saw the hugely successful 5th Annual CP Teens UK Ball at the Casa Hotel, Chesterfield.

The evening started with a special 'Pre-Ball Party' for 'CP Teens' and accompanying family/friends. Friendships built across the CP Teens UK network were able to come together prior to the main event starting with welcome drinks, a glitter artist and a photo booth!

From 7pm, 125 guests arrived to support CP Teens UK at the glittering black tie event.

This year's Special Guest was award winning disability travel blogger, Carrie-Ann Lightley. Carrie-Ann, who has Cerebral Palsy, inspired guests after dinner with her stories and tales about leaving her comfort zone and travelling the world with Cerebral Palsy. Carrie-Ann also told the room how important she felt CP Teens UK is and admitted that "teenage me is very envious of this support network right now!".

As in previous years, the room was full of 'help, hope, inspiration & friendship'.

"This Ball is the highlight of my year every year - there's always something so magical and special about it, it's wholesome!" - Guest

"I love how I can meet and see 'my' people and literally 'have a ball'! I feel so supported and a part of something." - 'CP Teen'

Over £9,000 was raised for CP Teens UK.

Thank you so much for everyone's incredible generosity.

Photos can be found in the Gallery.

Details and information for the 2020 6th Annual CP Teens UK to be released soon!

World Cerebral Palsy Day

October 05, 2019

Today is World Cerebral Palsy Day!

1 in 400 people have Cerebral Palsy in the UK. Cerebral Palsy is an umbrella term referring to a lifelong condition effecting movement and coordination as a result of a brain injury before, during or after birth. 

 

Today we celebrate everyone with Cerebral Palsy. The young, the old, the boys, the girls, the men and the women. The students, the workers, the athletes, the bloggers, the campaigners, the writers, the grafters, the models, the game changers, the office workers, the teachers and the never give uppers. The artists, the mathematicians, the designers, the trial blazers, the retail assistants, the scientists, the coaches and the computer whizzes. The party animals, the dancers, the jokers, the stars of the show, the actors and actresses and the musicians. The film lovers, the comedians, the singers, the organisers, the fashionistas and the innovators. The list is endless!

 

Today we celebrate everyone with Cerebral Palsy and go green!
