Children’s charity Brainwave will help two more youngsters with a disability or additional needs to unlock their potential, thanks to a cash donation by UK Healthcare.

The children, both from the Bolton area, will benefit directly for 12 months, through the charity’s Guardianship Scheme.

Brainwave provides a bespoke service which aims to improve children’s mobility, communication skills and learning potential through a wide range of physical and educational therapies. The organisation takes a holistic approach to helping each and every child; first assessing them for two days to define their needs and design an individual home based therapy

From proceeds raised through our annual charity football tournament, UK Healthcare Risk Director Trevor Nicholls presented Carole Headley of Brainwave with a cheque for £7,000. This donation will ensure that two Lancashire children will receive all of the help and treatment they require for the next year.

Carole Headley, Development Manager of Brainwave, was in no doubt that the children would benefit from the help they received.

She said: “Brainwave are delighted to receive this donation from everybody at UK Healthcare. It will help two local children on our programme. Our aim is to help children living with various disabilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence.

“We are constantly discovering new ways to accomplish this, but we rely upon the generosity of patrons and businesses like UK Healthcare.

“Understandably we are extremely grateful for the funding we have received from UK Healthcare. It has been fantastic getting to know Trevor and the rest of the team and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
