Bobath Wales has received a grant of £42,500 from The Trust for Sick Children in Wales.
After a competitive application process, the Trust chose Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre Wales so we could continue supporting children with cerebral palsy and their families. The fund will enable us to purchase a new van which will be used to collect and deliver donations to our five retail shops, as well as providing much-needed replacement computers for our fantastic Therapy team.
We provide specialist therapy and treatment to children living with cerebral palsy as well as giving families the practical and emotional support that they need. Cerebral palsy is the most common disability in children in the world; today there are approximately 1,800 children in Wales living with cerebral palsy. It is a permanent condition caused by brain damage that affects posture and movement. It can also affect sensation, perception, cognition, communication, and eating and drinking.
Noel Williams from The Trust for Sick Children in Wales said “For almost 30 years we have been supporting charities in Wales who provide help and support to families with sick children. We wanted to give the money to Bobath Wales to help them continue their fantastic work in giving support and treatment to children from across Wales who have cerebral palsy.”
Rachel Morgan, our Head of Income Generation, would like to thank The Trust for their generous donation: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this grant and would like to thank The Trust sincerely for selecting us. Their gift will make a significant difference to both our therapy and retail teams who work tirelessly to support children and families directly, as well as raising the funds to enable our charitable work. Without gifts like these, we wouldn’t be able to continue doing the work that we do.”
