Disabilities It’s Christmas and to celebrate Cerebral Palsy Alliance is granting 12 Christmas wishes for Canberra children with a disability and their siblings. The children placed their wishes on our Christmas Wishing Tree at an expo in Canberra in September. We’re playing Santa and making 12 of those wishes come true.

 

Four year-old Blake Tummers, who has global development delay – a term used when a child develops skills more slowly than other children in the same age group – was granted his wish to be a fireman for the day.Blake was given the opportunity to wear the uniform, ride in a fire truck, and put out a blaze at the fire training centre.His father Doug said it had given his son a cherished memory.”He’ll be going on about this for quite a while, we’ve got all the photos,” he said.

The children and their families made their wishes at the Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s (CPA) Early Intervention and Therapy Services Expo in September.Mark Xuereb from the CPA, which has spent months developing the campaign, said it was challenging to make the wishes a reality.”It’s been interesting, some of the wishes the children have put forward,” he said.”We’ve certainly had to think outside the box to grant a few of the wishes.”Seeing the whole family being happy really goes to the heart of what we aim to do, which is to support the family unit around people with disabilities.”
