Children’s charity receives generous donation
Supporting local children's charity
A North East chartered surveyor and estate agent has donated thousands of pounds to a local children’s charity.
Bradley Hall donated a total of £17,000 to Heel and Toe to help the charity support children with physical disabilities.
Bradley Hall operations director, Peter Bartley who is a trustee for the charity, said: “Heel and Toe are an independent local charity which completely relies on donations to provide much needed therapy for children with disabilities.
“We would also like to thank our guests and business partners who helped us fundraise at our recent event at Newcastle Race Course.“
Heel and Toe, based in Pelton, Chester Le Street, was established in 2008 due to lack of therapy for children with physical disabilities provided by the NHS.
The charity helps over 100 children from across the North East each week with 12,000 hours of free therapy including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language, conductive education and special educational needs tutoring.
Douglas Long, chief executive of Heel and Toe said, “Heel and Toe receives no government funding and needs over £500,000 each year to provide the vital services, so we are very grateful for this large donation.
“I would like to say a big thank you to Bradley Hall on behalf of the charity, the children who use our services and their families. The money will make a huge impact and allow us to deliver our much needed services to children in the North East who need it most.“
