CP Teens UK Party - COVID-19 permitting

June 24, 2020

We've been getting a lot of questions over the past couple of weeks about when our 'in-person' events will return...

COVID-19 PERMITTING, on Saturday 24th October CP Teens UK hopes to throw a party - 70's, 80's & 90's! 🎉🍾🎤🎧

Chesterfield Rugby Club - accessible venue with accessible toilet.

 

This was the original date for the CP Teens UK 2020 Ball (now postponed until March 2021) - if we can, we are hoping to hold a smaller event on a smaller scale on the same night.

 

We are unsure of exactly how the party will look like at this current time and it will only go ahead if it is safe and we are permitted to do so.

 

Please let us know if you're potentially interested by completing the form here to help with planning as far as possible: https://forms.gle/5DafpcejisUi64Pu6

Captain Tobias picks up a RaceRunner

June 13, 2020

You may have heard of 'Captain Tobias' during lockdown!

 

Tobias has Cerebral Palsy and Autism. He saw Captain Tom Moore walking lengths of his garden with his walker to raise money for the NHS and Tobias was inspired to challenge himself to a marathon using his walker!

 

Tobias’s Marathon Challenge went viral and he completed his marathon raising over £100,000 for charity!

 

CP Teens UK is very proud to assist Tobias's next mammoth challenge! We have provided Tobias with a RaceRunner so he can complete his 'TOBIATHLON'! He is now attempting to RaceRun the distance of a marathon!

 

Tobias, with his mum Ruth, picked up a CP Teens UK RaceRunner last week from Founder, Ellie.

 

Go Tobias, go!
