Past President Tony Power and Geoff Moore presented a cheque for £1,500.00 from Rotary Beckenham to the Freddie Farmer Foundation (main picture). The donation will go towards a bedsit they are building to enable parents and disabled children to stay at the centre rather than hotels. Typically a course of physio takes two weeks so a stay on site will reduce stress and travel and be cheaper than hotel accommodation.

Nov 2016 Freddie Farmer
We have donated £1,500 to the Freddie Farmer Foundation, specifically for the Physiotherapy Centre, which provides intensive physiotherapy programmes for disabled children aged 3-16.The centre is one of only a handful of independent UK therapy centres offering specialist equipment and therapeutic exercises, supporting disabled children from all over London and the South-East.
Rotary Beckenham is proud to support the Foundation and is helping to fund a LokoHelp electromechanical gait trainer that was developed to relieve therapist's labour intensive task of guiding the patients legs during locomotion therapy. Locomotion therapy using the LokiHelp not only assist therapist, but also improves gait symmetry and the quality of therapy for the patient.
Pictured with Freddie is Geoff Moore and David Hynes after putting up a sign confirming Rotary Beckenham’s support to the Foundation. Want to help Freddie? To find more visit www.freddiefarmerfoundation.org.uk
Sept 2016 Amaze Penge
Amaze Penge took 17 very excited children and there families to Chessington on the 2 September. We had a terrific time and the feedback was really good from all the families.
A party of eight were late so they didn't make the photo plus six of the children were playing in the tent behind us. Thank you to all Beckenham Rotarians,
April 2015 CASPA
In the picture above, Robert Barnes hands a cheque for £1,000 from Rotary Beckenham to representatives from CASPA..This is a local branch of the charity, which looks after the needs of autistic children and their families.
Over recent years their work has expanded significantly and they now look after some 250 families, so our club support is much needed.
CASPA's success is highlighted by the children who go on to further education or find work; one has just qualified as a paramedic. Their rented premises is now full and there is a long waiting list for those wanting to join, so further help would enable relief to be given to struggling families.
