Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects muscle control and movement, usually caused by an injury to the brain before, during or shortly after birth. Children with cerebral palsy can have difficulties controlling muscles and movements as they grow and develop.
Cerebral palsy football is for ambulant players with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders, such as stroke and traumatic brain injury.
Ben Szreter, Cambridge United Community Trust CEO, said: “We are happy to welcome Irwin Mitchell on board as a new sponsor. The firm shares a similar drive to promote the benefits of disability sport.
“We are grateful to Irwin Mitchell for their sponsorship of these sessions and we can provide more opportunities for those who have cerebral palsy over the next 12 months.”
Andy Farrer, Health and Inclusion Officer at Cambridge United Community Trust, said: “We are extremely thankful to have Irwin Mitchell become a key part in continuing to provide opportunities for individuals to participate in sport with Cambridge United Community Trust.
“We look forward to working together with this sponsorship and future programmes.”
