Just last weekend, the charity came together and raised hundreds by hosting a static bike race.
Brainwave Independence Group has been designated as charity of the year for the Lowestoft branch of Marks and Spencer.
The charity is dedicated to supporting people with brain injuries and disabilities.
Just last weekend, the charity came together to raise funds by hosting a static bike race.
The race, which took place on October 28 and 29 had scores of supporters come down to the London Street store in Lowestoft for the events and announced their latest member, the face of East Anglia - Erika Temple.
After two days down on the Lowestoft high street the Brainwave Independence Group raised £398.98.
David Revell, chair of Brainwave said: 'It was brilliant, the hard work by all the people that did the collecting and the bike riding was brilliant, the staff from the shop helped us out on the Friday too.
