Wimbledon firefighters get on bikes for cerebral palsy baby

First published in

A group of Wimbledon firefighters are preparing to cycle more than 250 miles in three days in support of a one year old baby girl with cerebral palsy.

Neave Evans was born with four limb cerebral palsy, or quadriplegia, paralysing her limbs and torso and forcing her to require round the clock specialist care.

On Thursday, October 10, ten fire fighters from Wimbledon’s red watch will set out on a three day charity cycle from Wimbledon Station to the Legacy Rainbow House in Ecclestone in Lancashire. 

Money raised will go toward Neave’s fund at the Legacy Rainbow House which provides care and support for children with brain damage and physical disabilities between the ages of three months to 16 years.

The therapy received from the Legacy Rainbow House, whose motto is "putting the ability in disability", will work toward giving Neave the best chance at enhancing her life and learning to manage her disability through education, recreation and sports.
