We help children with disabilities to achieve their potential


We are continuing to keep this page open for continued fundraising for Brainwave. 

We are taking a £429 banger on an adventure like no other for Brainwave, a charity close to our heart because Brainwave's intervention transformed Maddy's life by helping her unlock my potential.


The Tweenies on Tour are a mother and daughters team whose first challenge adventure is to drive through 8 countries in 5 days, destination Venice with an amazing group of people. We will drive through breath-taking scenery enjoying fun, much laughter & challenges en-route. Having an incredible time whilst raising as much money as possible for Brainwave.

Both the charity banger car & us are in fancy dress AND we're rather nervous because we have no mechanical knowledge whatsoever!!
We are raising money for Brainwave because at 6 months old, chickenpox was life-changing for Maddy, and developmental skills were lost. An NHS prognosis then was she might never walk or talk.

Maddy first attended The Brainwave Centre in Bridgwater for her initial assessment in December 2002. She was 2 years old. At the Centre, Maddy was prescribed a holistic programme of integrating therapy exercises and most importantly her development & cognitive abilities were continually assessed. The wonderful team at Brainwave continued to support & keep in touch with us over the years.

This is our family's way of thanking the charity. We are welcoming donations to help fund places, so other young children can attend the Centre and reach their individual potential.

Do follow our journey on Facebook & any donation, however small, is very much appreciated. Thank you.
