Hello all, this week is a very important week! So we at Cerebral Palsy Midlands, look forward to seeing you on World CP Day, Wednesday 6th October. https://worldcpday.org/.

CPM has been working together with ‘CP Adult Advice UK' and ‘Scope’ to raise awareness of the campaign and get Landmarks across the UK to be lit Green this Wednesday. I am waiting for confirmation, hopefully, and fingers crossed today, to get confirmation from Birmingham Town Hall to represent our city.

The hashtag this year is #millionsofreasons as we can think of a million reasons why we need to raise awareness for the disability that is cerebral palsy. So, make sure you wearing green, thinking green, baking green and talking green on Wednesday and we shall see you there.
