Yay! Boswells are hosting a Footsteps Charity this weekend in store on October 25th & 26th . Take a chance with our "Lucky Dip" or, "Tombola". Make it a game of skill with "Pin the Tail On The Donkey" or educated guesswork with "How Many Travel Adaptors In The Suitcase". Or just join in with the fabulous Ghost Hunt and make donation upon entry. For the weekend we will also be asking for a donation, of your choice to take purchases away via our carrier bags. Staff will be either in fancy dress or Footsteps t-shirts to celebrate.

More Information

The intensive therapy programme combines traditional methods of physiotherapy with the use of a specialist piece of equipment which is unique to the UK. The ‘Spider’ enables therapists to carry out a range of exercises in any chosen position using elastic ropes to align the child’s body. The three-week therapy programme helps disabled children to increase their physical, cognitive and developmental abilities whilst improving their confidence and independence.

Footsteps Foundation financially assists those families who would otherwise struggle to afford the cost of the Footsteps therapy programme. The charity awards grants to these families covering a percentage of the total cost and helping disabled children to reach their full potential.

Boswells is delighted to be supporting a locally based charity that brings not only physical benefits but genuine joy into the lives of challenged children. As you can see from the delight on these young faces.
