Aviva Community Fund Win!
We are pleased to announce that we have won funding from the Aviva Community Fund meaning we can now fund two new treatment beds.
Back in October and November we went up against hundreds of other community projects across the UK for a public vote in the Health, Disability and Well-being category. We would like to say a huge thank you to each and every person that voted for our project and helped spread the word. Without the support of you, our wonderful community we wouldn't have been able to reach the finals.
In the finals we then went up against 8 other projects which were all judged by an independent panel. Our project scored highly and was chosen as the lucky winner to receive up to £5,000 funding. The two new treatment beds we will now be able to fund will make such a difference to the physio and complimentary therapy department.
One of the treatment beds will be a Physio Tilt Table which is a special Physio bed that allows physio service users to be treated lying down or be brought up into a standing position. The second is a Treatment Couch which will allow for Physio treatments and/or Complimentary Therapy treatments to be carried out. As the NMC is currently undergoing an extension which sees the physiotherapy department grow (with the addition of a new treatment room) these beds will mean we can treat more people more regularly.
Thank you to everyone for their support.
