ROTARIANS from Oswestry Rotary Club visited The Movement Centre at the Orthopaedic Hospital recently to see for themselves the new soft play building blocks that were purchased with the donation from their 2017 Tree of Light Appeal.

President Dave Davies, Appeal Organiser Mike Jones and Rotarian Denzil Ellis were shown the blocks and met some of the staff from the Centre which provides a specialist therapy called Targeted Training for children who have problems with their movement control. With this help, a child is up to 4 times more likely to gain control of their movement than with traditional physiotherapy alone and can gain head control and develop the skills to sit unaided so they can play and interact with their friends and family.

Fundraiser and Physiotherapy Assistant Curtis Langley thanked the Tree of Light Sponsors: “We are very grateful for the contribution of the Tree of Light Appeal towards our work. Donations like this enable us to continue providing Targeted Training which makes a huge difference to the children and their families.”
