Footsteps Filmstars!

It’s been a busy week at the Footsteps Centre! We have just finished filming for our first professional film which documents the lives of Footsteps families and shows how the Footsteps therapy programme continues to make a positive difference to the lives of many children.

Thank you to all those who have contributed to the project and a special thanks to Tracy Christie for volunteering her time and expertise to the project.

We are very excited to see the finished product at the end of the year! And if that’s not enough, we will soon be working with a group of students from Oxford Brookes University who will also be producing a short film for Footsteps. Watch this space!

 

 

Lions hear footsteps

The Goring & District Lions Club invited our Fundraiser Clare to attend a dinner evening on Monday 8th October. After a superbe meal, she was given the opportunity to talk about Footsteps and the difference we can make to families with disabled children. She walked away with a generous donation of £1,500 from the Club which will fund a three week therapy session for a local child and also contribute towards the Equipment Bank Project. Thank you to all of the Lions for their contribution to Footsteps Foundation!

Fundraising Committee Opportunity

CAN YOU HELP A DISABLED CHILD TAKE A FOOTSTEP?

We are looking for volunteers of all backgrounds to help raise awareness and funds for Footsteps Foundation.

The demand for support from Footsteps Foundation is continuing to increase as more and more children with cerebral palsy and other neurological disorders require financial assistance to access the unique and intensive Footsteps physiotherapy programme.

Since 2009 Footsteps Foundation has provided support to 111 individual disabled children and awarded £100,877 worth of grants in 2011 alone.

Positions are currently available on our fundraising committee which meets once a month to discuss fundraising opportunities and raise the charity’s profile locally and nationally. There are also positions available on the Board of Trustees and people interested in general fundraising/volunteering are encouraged to get in touch.

Pip Hoyer Millar, Founder of Footsteps Foundation, says “Becoming a committee member or a volunteer is a great way of helping a disabled child to reach their full potential. It is a hugely rewarding role and we are looking forward to welcoming input from a new group of people.”

For an information pack, please contact Clare at clare@footstepsfoundation.com or call 01865 340376.
