President's Charity 2019/20 and 2020/21
New President 2020-21:
Our President for the coming year, Steve Bradley was inaugurated at the Club Assembly Meeting on 4th June, taking over from Chris Duff on 1st July.
The Covid19 emergency has caused the cancellation of a number of our proposed fund raising events such as the ExtraMile Cycle challenge and President’s Night, this has had a marked effect on the amount raised for Chris’s charity BDCPS. Steve has proposed, and it was agreed by members, that fundraising for his nominated charity “MK Volunteering Matters” will take place after 1st July 2021.
All proceeds from fundraising events taking place from now until July 2021, including funding from the 2021 ExtraMile Challenge to go to Chris’ charity, Bedford and District Cerebral Palsy Society.
District Cerebral Palsy Society.
Originally established in 1954, BDCPS is a small local charity which provides play schemes and youth clubs for disabled young people (aged 0 to 25) in addition to critical support and funding to families, parents and carers.
At BDCPS we focus on ABILITY rather than disability. We go to
great lengths to ensure all clubs are inclusive, creative, inspiring and
BDCPS provide specialist
support for those living with cerebral palsy in Bedford Borough and Central
Bedfordshire. We can also help families living with any disability outside our
area including Milton Keynes
All our youth clubs and play schemes
provide young people with 1:1 support and our professional team of staff can
meet all care needs.
At BDCPS we always focus on ABILITY not DISABILITY!
