Our Hope

You may remember Suzy from the days when she was found in our local shops. She spread awareness and raised funds for children with cerebral palsy. We no longer see her in the shopping areas, but she is very available online.

We all seem to be moving at a rapid pace these days, but thankfully much is just a click away! Please will you consider downloading the Donate Nation App today so you can donate to the work of The Western Cape Cerebral Palsy Association via SUZY (who is now digital!)
