Two neuro-physiotherapists are running the London Marathon to help raise cash to by equipment to help the rehabilitation of people who have suffered a brain injury.

Lee Massingham and Rachel Fenner, who work at Fen House specialist rehabilitation centre in Ely, are hoping to raise over £3,000 and a cake bake at the rehabilitation centre on Thursday raised £185 towards their target.

The cash will be used to buy equipment to help service users of Fen house, who have suffered an acquired brain injury, for example a stroke or a traumatic injury.

Lee said: “We want to use the funds to buy a specialist upper limb work station which will help clients work on improving the movement and function in their arms and hands.”

Service users worked together to make cakes for the Fen House Great Easter Bake-off which was judged by Ely’s mayor Councillor Lis Every.
