A national children’s charity is calling on parents of disabled children in Hastings and Rother to apply for life changing equipment.

Caudwell Children, who provide practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families, has received funding to supply two life enhancing therapy tricycles to disabled children in the region.

The national charity is now appealing for families to come forward and apply for the equipment.

The tricycles, which cost £800-£1,500, are individually designed to meet the needs of each disabled child and help provide physiotherapy, build muscle tone and promote play. They also help benefit growth and development in children with disabilities, enabling them to keep active and retain their independence.

The charity wants to hear from families of disabled children in the region and asks them to come forward to claim the life changing equipment before funding is withdrawn.

Trudi Beswick, Chief Executive Caudwell Children, said: “We donate hundreds of life changing therapy tricycles to disabled children throughout the UK each year, but we currently have no applicants from Hastings or surrounding area.

“Disabled children get huge physical and emotional benefits from having the specially adapted tricycles, which are each custom made to suit the individual child’s needs.

If your family or anybody you know could benefit from this opportunity call 0345 300 1348 and ask to speak to the Applications Team. Visit: www.caudwellchildren.com
