Active Hands on BBC’s Children in Need!
On Friday 15th November, BBC’s Children in Need raised its highest ever total of £31.1m supporting over 2,600 projects all over the United Kingdom.
Featured on the programme was an appeal film, presented by Tom Jones, about Tomos, aged 10, who lives near Newport, south Wales with his mum and dad. Tomos has mild cerebral palsy, epilepsy and is on the autistic spectrum, and has gained his first taste of independence, thanks to the paediatric physiotherapist at Pedal Power in Cardiff who is funded by a grant from BBC Children in Need.
Though Tomos himself doesn’t use Active Hands Aids, the film prominently featured other “Pedal Power” children who use small and mini sized aids to ride their adapted tricycles.
