That the Parliament notes that Dr Julie McElroy has received the Service Award from the Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association (CPISRA) in recognition of her international role as Head of Recreation at the organisation as it has set out to engage with international organisations that can deliver recreational opportunities; notes Julie's missionary goal to inspire people with cerebral palsy across the globe to achieve their aspirations in accessing the outdoors, and  to allow them to sustain and have pride in having an active lifestyle; understands that Julie was instrumental in delivering CPISRA’s first international outdoor recreation camp, which was held by the Calvert Trust in the Lake District in 2019, and sends her its best wishes.
