Tozers sponsor Erb’s Palsy Group 25th Anniversary event

The Erb’s Palsy Group are celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year with a family “Picnic in the Park” on Sunday 19th August at the Heart of England Conference Centre. It is hoped that the weather will hold out for what should be a fun filled day for members and supporters of the Charity. The Charity began life as a support group in the early 90’s when a few families met at a specialist treatment clinic in London. In 1994 the group appeared on the Lorraine Kelly show on GMTV and overnight the membership increased six-fold. There are now over 1700 members.

Erb’s Palsy also known as Brachial Plexus Palsy is a physical condition involving partial or complete paralysis of the arm. It is usually caused through trauma to the nerves in the neck and often to an infant during birth.

The Erb’s Palsy Group, who are run by a Board of volunteer Trustees and supporters, offer advice, information and support to families affected by Erb’s Palsy. Their aim is to increase awareness and promote better understanding of this condition. The group strives to reduce incidence rates through education and training of the medical profession but also to promote better treatment, by early referral to specialist centres. As a Charity they rely entirely on donations and grants and the incredible fundraising efforts of their members.

Tozers have worked closely with and have supported the Charity for more than 20 years and we are delighted to sponsor this celebratory event. Endurance Arthur and Clair Hemming, Partners in the Clinical Negligence team will be attending and joining in with the fun, which includes attractions such as a mini farm, rage karts, climbing wall and den building.
