The Movement Centre, near Oswestry, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, a quarter of a century helping children to gain more control of their movement through Targeted Training therapy.

Situated in the grounds of the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital the centre helps children from across the country.

To help mark the silver anniversary, organisers have launched a Get up and Go, virtual fitness event, to walk, run or cycle five, 25, 100 or 250 miles during January.

One of those at the centre, Curtis Langley, said that several people had already signed up and that it was not too late to join in.

He said: "Fundraising is extremely important for us to continue our work to continue life changing treatments."

"It's a perfect opportunity to work off all the mince pies and excesses of Christmas."

The cost of signing up is £12.50, with a limited amount of medals available for taking part."

The charity is also urging people to come forward with ideas for fundraisers through the 25th anniversary year.

Curtis said: "Have you got an idea you would like to see turned into a reality? You might want to set yourself a challenge for a special birthday perhaps or celebrate being able to see family and friends properly when we can with a fundraising event

"We want your ideas and help."
