Some of the things we have been able to fund thanks to legacies
Here are just some of the great things that we have been able to do thanks to Gifts in a Will.
Refurbishment of the Centre
We have always prided ourselves in offering a warm, welcoming environment. We want to make sure our members enjoy coming to the Centre. Our building was brand new in 1999 and by 2014 it was in need of a refresh. A legacy along with a few generous donations from trusts and foundations, allowed us to refurbish the Centre without taking a penny away from our therapy provision. Our Centre went from being tired to a warm comfortable place for our members to attend.
New physiotherapy equipment
We have been able to purchase some new physiotherapy equipment including a new treadmill and Treax pads.
Treax is an innovative system that will help our members with balance, co-ordination and weight bearing. The bright and colourful LED display on the pads shows how much weight is being used on each leg giving visual feedback. This will help our members to work on a ‘weaker’ side and see how their weight is balanced.
Somewhere to relax
The patio and garden at the back of our building has been transformed into a place to relax and enjoy the sunshine... although sadly we can’t guarantee the weather.
As you sit and look out on the beautiful flowers, plants and pond, you will not believe you are so close to the hustle and bustle of the Oxford Road.
