Hi! We are Catherine, Pamela, Susan, Alex, and Clement from the Advocacy and Marketing Team at CPAS.

Throughout the year, we have been heartened by the constant stream of donations from members of the public despite the difficult economic situation. Donors like yourself enable us to continue supporting our clients with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities.

So this holiday season, lets come together as one loving community and #SpareYourChangeForSuzy !
