“The Movement Centre changed my son Stan’s life,” said David Vicary. “He was born with Down Syndrome and a range of other medical complications. By the time he was four, he still had very little trunk control and was a way off being mobile, and the prospect of him ever walking was a distant dream. But attending The Movement Centre transformed our lives in indescribable ways. Stan is now a very happy mobile boy. We wanted to use this time in isolation to give something back to The Movement Centre and there is nothing Stan loves more than cake!”

To order a cake, families can email with their order and contact details (including phone number). Donations can be made through Just Giving –

David, who is now Chair of Trustees at The Movement Centre said, “As well as this being a challenging times for charities like The Movement Centre, we know that everyone is facing tough times at the moment but we also know that keeping the children fed and watered is one of the biggest challenges of being at home, so hopefully this can save families a job and give them a delicious and well-deserved weekly treat, safely delivered to their door.”
