Friends and supporters of the children’s charity, Brainwave, came together to celebrate Brainwave’s first birthday in central Manchester.
In November 2009, Brainwave’s third Centre was formally opened by the Charity’s HRH The Countess of Wessex in Birchwood, Warrington. The celebration event was held on the thirteen floor of Chancery Place in Brown Street, M2 and the cake was cut by Brainwave’s Chair of the Trustees, Martin Jackson (L in photo), and Bob Dyson, Chair of North West Jones Lang Lasalle and a supporter of the Charity.
Christine Cryne, Brainwave’s Chief Executive Officer, said ‘We are very delighted with the support that we have received from so many people in Manchester and the North West. They have made us feel very welcome. The number of children attending our new Centre has doubled in the year we have been open and is now approaching 70 families. With more support we hope to double this again!’
Brainwave was established in 1982 in Bridgwater and works with families to deliver individual, home based therapy and exercises for children with disabilities and Development Delay to reach their full potential. This can be anything from walking to recognising numbers. The Charity looks after a whole range of children with conditions including Cerebral Palsy, Down’s syndrome and Autism.
