Celebrating and Raising Awareness on World Cerebral Palsy Day

Bernie at the SSE Hydro on World CP Day

World Cerebral Palsy Day on 6 October 2019 and the #GoGreen4CP campaign was a roaring success - thank you to everyone who took part!

World Cerebral Palsy Day aims to spread awareness of cerebral palsy and shine a light on the cerebral palsy community in Scotland and around the world.

We hope that Bobath Scotland supporters enjoyed the celebration, whether it was lighting up local landmarks, wearing green, or taking to social media to spread the word and using the #GoGreen4CP and #WorldCPDay hashtags.


Across the world approximately 215 venues turned green - the international colour of cerebral palsy - on 6 October. Thank you again to the amazing venues in Scotland that joined the #GoGreen4CP campaign and turned green on Sunday night!

  • Maryhill Burgh Halls
  • SSE Hydro
  • Paisley Arts Centre
  • Ness Bridge
  • Mareel Cinema, Shetland
  • Prestonfield House
  • The Witchery by the Castle
  • St Andrews House

Marathon Fundraiser on World CP Day

Cheryl and Gary Stewart

Sunday was also a special day for Cheryl and Gary Stewart, who completed their first ever marathon around Loch Ness! They were inspired to run in the event because their twin daughter comes to the Bobath centre for therapy. The pair raised an incredible £1526.00 for Bobath Scotland and deserve a heartfelt congratulations for completing this wonderful accomplishment together. You can still donate to their fundraising campaign online.

Businesses and Supporters Go Green

Walter Scott Bake Sale

On Friday, several workplaces in Scotland also took part in early celebrations and fundraisers for World CP Day.

The EnviroCentre staff in Glasgow all dressed in green on Friday, and Kay at Walter Scott in Edinburgh hosted a fabulous bake sale for 150 guests! Both events were a huge success, raising both funds and awareness for CP and Bobath Scotland.

Wearing Green

Over the weekend Bobath Scotland supporters donned their green to mark the occasion and spread the #GoGreen4CP word, sending and sharing pictures across social media. Everyone looked great - thank you for participating and sending us your pictures!
