Huge thanks once again to Scottish Legal Support Service providers Digby Brown Solicitors for sponsoring our annual trip to the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena in Ratho. A great turnout this year, with over 70 people attending!  It was great to catch up with some familiar faces and to see families coming along for the first time.  We hope everyone had a fab time!

Older kids enjoyed their session of climbing with the experienced instructors, while younger children  took part in the science workshop with Be Experimental and made some fantastic things. Parents and carers were given the chance to truly relax with some fab treatments from KDH Therapies.

Family days are a vital part of the support offered by the Child Brain Injury Trust. They give the whole family a chance to relax and have some fun together in a safe space, something that’s not always easy. They also provide a rare chancKhadijah Khurram &  Abdul wahid shahid 17-04-16e for families to meet up with each other and share their experiences, which helps to build support networks.  Thanks to our sponsors, the whole day is free for families.

One participant told us, “I loved it and made new friends,” and another said it was, “Our first CBIT event – great fun. Happy children.”
