Increasing Demand Means Children's Charity Must Get Bigger

Pace Centre

With demand for its services growing all the time, a Buckinghamshire charity's got to build a bigger centre to cope.

Cerebral Palsy affects those who suffer with it differently and it's often obvious within the first few weeks of a baby's life that they have the condition.

Aylesbury has one of the few places in the country that can properly help.

Dan's been finding out about the Pace Centre's work, starting with parents Andy and Francesca:

If you want to help the PACE centre's work, here are some upcoming charity events:

  • On Saturday 4 July, they're running a one-off 25th Anniversary Yorkshire Three Peaks walking challenge. The walk is 25 miles in one day, fully guided, and supported. This is a wonderful opportunity to visit a stunning region of the country in the company of a total of just 25 walkers. Walkers can make a weekend of it, by staying on for Sunday at one of the delightful hotels we can recommend. Check out the details here http://www.thepacecentre.org/Groups/252436/Yorkshire_Three_Peaks.aspx 
  • On Saturday 18 July, they hold their ‘Pedal for PACE’ Summer Cycle Sportive, online sign up at www.pedalforpace.org 
  • Between 5-11 September, their big cycle challenge will visit the wilds of Transylvania, for a 400 mile 5 day ride through Dracula country. The big feature of this event, other than the bears and blood sucking counts, is the world’s most beautiful road; the Transfagarasan Highway, as featured on BBC Top Gear.
