We had a fantastic day on Saturday 18 September doing our NICE car parking for the Edgbaston cricket attendees. We raised a spectacular £1,600 from the day, thanks to our helpful and reliable volunteers; Ranjit, Gayle, Alex, Alan, Theresa and Matt.
The Conductive College will be running a CPD training course in Conductive Education starting in October. Sessions will be run on Zoom at 2 different times each week to suit all time zones. Please click here to access the course schedule and information about how to sign up.
We invite you to join us for our 10k run on Sunday 31 October 2021. If you are not familiar with the run, our runners set off from the NICE car park around 9:40am and run the scenic route around Cannon Hill Park.

When runners have finished, they make their way back to NICE for our prize giving ceremony, raffle and not forgetting our wonderful tea & cake stall!
