Play Therapy Funding for Young Amputee

The Orchards Centre in Sittingbourne,set up in 2012 helps over 2000 disabled children and their families with a range of healthcare services. The Red Eagle Foundation has helped with a number of specialist funding projects over the past few months.

Jannie Pommer, a physio at the Orchards Centre said, "Red Eagle Foundation have helped support a number of projects for the children and families who use the Medway Community Healthcare services at the Orchards. This has ranged from bespoke specialist equipment for children with muscular dystrophy and more recently play therapy sessions for a child who recently underwent an amputation.

The work Red Eagle Foundation has done with services at the centre has really made a huge a positive impact on the children’s lives and their families and friends around them. We are very fortunate to have such great support from Red Eagle Foundation and have always found them to be very responsive when a need arises both large and small."

Will Cotter said "Having investigated the story of this 10 year old girl having recently enduring multiple hospital visits due to the amputation and infections she subseqeuntly had additonal family trauma leading to an absolute loss of confidence and desire to move forward.  We were determined to be able to help provide this valuable play therapy".

The Foundation looks forward to continuing their help by funding additional projects in the future.
