We were delighted to support Rookwood SPUR charity with their fund-raising event “Wheel 4 Rookwood Spur” in Cardiff Bay on a sunny Sunday in July.

SPUR provide vital support for people living with spinal cord injuries and a range of facilities not only for inpatients themselves but also for their families.

Here is Bussey Mc Bus Face having a rest after her journey to the bay from Rookwood Hospital.

Wheel 4 Rookwood SpUR was a huge success! A great turnout of supporters, inpatients, ex-patients and staff, even the ones who just happened to be out for a walk!

A fantastic afternoon @ the Barrage as 90 “wheelers” took part in the charity ride around Cardiff Bay. Bikes trikes, wheelchairs, scooters and even roller skates did the course. Great family fun for all ages and even the weather played its part with the sun shining. Lots of cheers and smiles at the end as all received their medals and enjoyed well deserved cake and sweets!
