Poppy’s Dream

Despite being born with quadriplegic cerebral palsy and chronic lung disease, Poppy is a determined character, a real thrill-seeker and an adrenaline junkie. We made Poppy’s dream come true by designing and making all of the equipment she needed to take her and her dad Rob to the finish line of the Cardiff Triathlon in style. 


A huge thank you to everyone that helped us make these cool and unique products a reality – and make Poppy’s dreams come true.

Poppy has since gone on to complete many more triathlons and even a marathon.

Poppy doesn’t think ‘I can’t’ but rather ‘with a little help I can’. I’ve got my work cut out though as Poppy doesn’t want to just take part – she wants to win!
