As part of Vistair’s on-going support for local charitable causes, members of the Vistair team recently sponsored and supported Harry and Freddie Turnell’s annual golf event in aid of Cerebral Palsy.
Harry is an extraordinary young man who has both cerebral palsy and severe dyslexia. Despite this condition both he and his brother Freddie are passionate about helping other cerebral palsy sufferers.
Harry and Freddie are both keen sportsmen and have used this passion for golf to great effect. Over the last 12 months have raised £12,000 through their annual golf event at Burnham and Berrow Golf Club. Supporters at the last event includedSir Gareth Edwardsas well asJohn Inverdale and Naga Munchettyfrom the BBC.
Their efforts has allowed them to help fund a racing bike for Nathan Freeman. Nathan has been a wheelchair user since the age of 10 and was searching for a sport that filled him with excitement and passion. He joined a local Special Olympic squad in June 2013 originally training at shot put until the club loaned him a racing wheelchair to try. That, as they say, is history with racing becoming Nathan’s passion. Harry and Freddie have since helped Nathan fund his own racing bike, and subsequently, Nathan has been selected to represent England at CPISRA World Games in Spain this August.

Rob Morgan, CFO / COO, commented: “It is great to see Harry and Freddie’s passion for helping others and their endeavour to make a real difference to others who have to deal with cerebral palsy. They should be very proud of their achievements to date and it is a great inspiration for all of us to see the hugely positive impact of their support of others.”
