Bobath Fundraising Challenges 

Make 2018 really count - challenge yourself to something new while helping a very important cause.

We could not keep helping as many children, adults and families living with cerebral palsy as we do without the kindness and support of our wonderful fundraisers.  It’s simple – we need you!

By raising sponsorship to take part in one of the challenges listed below, you can support Bobath Scotland and make a valuable contribution to those with cerebral palsy in 2018.

Our Fundraising Team is here to help - give us a call on 0141 352 5000, or email us at fundraise@bobathscotland.org.uk.
