Supporting Brainwave Independence Group fundraising

I was delighted to take part in a static cycle ride at Lloyds Bank to support Brainwave Independence Group. The group supports local people with brain injury and disability promoting independent living helping people pursue full and interesting lives. Their aim is to open a day centre in Lowestoft which people with brain injuries or disabilities can visit.
