Therapy Stars Foundation will be holding a launch event on Friday January 27th at 1pm at Unit 36, Penley Industrial Estate. The launch will be attended by local dignitaries, business owners, therapists and supporters of the Charity.
Therapy Stars Foundation is a new Children’s Charity that will support local children with long term or life limiting conditions and their families to access various recognised therapies.
Therapy Stars Foundation offers awards of £500 to families living in Shropshire, Cheshire or North Wales for them to access therapy for a child with a long-term or life limiting condition. The grants can also be used for siblings of these children. Therapy may include more well-known professions such as Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy, but also those lesser known such as Music Therapy, Hippotherapy & Equine therapy, Hydrotherapy & Aquatic Therapy and counselling for example.
Sian Boffey, Co-founder and Trustee of the Charity, says “We are excited to introduce a new Charity in the hope that we can help and support as many families as possible. Early Intervention is key for many young children with long term or life-limiting conditions and ongoing therapy is a way of life for most of these families. But the financial constraints placed on all families, as well as the reduced resources available through statutory services, have meant that many children do not receive the therapy that they need or deserve.”
The event organisers would like to invite anyone who would be interested in hearing about the new Charity, how it may be able to benefit you or how you can help to support us, to come along and enjoy some refreshments, a short presentation and of course, a prize raffle.
