Event: Cardiff Half Marathon 2023, on 1 October 2023
The neuro-rehabilitation unit at Rookwood Hospital provides rehabilitation for people who have suffered brain injuries. The severity of this type of injury means that patients are often in hospital for many months.

Story

The Community Brain Injury Team (CBIT) support individuals who have experienced a brain injury during their rehabilitation journey. Many of our patients have benefitted from the fantastic support provided by the Prop Appeal. Therefore, the CBIT team are putting ourselves to the test in running/walking the half marathon, in order to raise funds for this wonderful charity (see below for further details about the charity).

If you would like to make a donation, you can follow the link to just giving - any contribution is gratefully received.

the Neuronners (Kat, Jude, Jackie, Helen, Lowri plus Alex)

and the rest of the Community Brain Injury Team: Jess, Rebecca, Ruth, Cat, Adele.

Prop Appeal

The Prop Appeal has been set up to help improve the experience of patients and their families during rehabilitation.

From generous donations we have been able to re-vamp the day-room into a more homely environment, upgrade the kitchen where patients are able to relearn cooking and other domestic skills, and upgrade a chalet which reproduces surroundings at home to help patients readjust before being discharged.

We are currently raising funds which will assist in improving patient well- being with the purchase of additional equipment and experiences above and beyond what the NHS can provide.
