The Gareth Cumming Adventure Memorial Award

back

Brittle Bone Society (BBS) are delighted to launch the second year of this award in the name of our late Trustee, Mr Gareth Cumming.

 

Applications will close 19th April 2024.

 

The winner will be announced approximately 4 weeks after.

 

We invite applicants from the UK and Ireland who have OI, are aged 18 or over, and want to experience something new to apply for up to £1000.

 

Perhaps you want to travel independently, visit a new location, meet people or learn something new ie attend a training course. Having OI may put hurdles in your way, however, Gareth would have said: ‘nothing is impossible’.

 

Gareth’s Memorial Award is designed to assist with overcoming some of the challenges encountered along the way. This grant may offer a boost of confidence and make a positive difference on your journey. The Gareth Memorial award is intended to help you take that first step.
