Child Brain Research Christmas Cards – CBR Christmas cards are now ready to order.  One pack of eight cards + envelopes £5.50 incl p&p.  Please contact sara.rowan@bpna.org.uk to place your order.


Sophie is 4 and makes very special Christmas cards (with a little help!) to remind everyone how super-duper lucky she is to have met Dr Rob when she acquired her brain injury. Lovely people like Rob need funds raised from CBR to help researching ways for children like Sophie to have a better quality of life… And he certainly helped Sophie and her family the best possible way he could. ? (Sophie’s Mum)
