Additional Information

FUNDRAISING in the past has allowed FOSH to provide:- a ‘Snoozelen’ (multi-sensory therapy room); a multigym for special physiotherapy; bathroom facilities at the Residential unit; garden equipment, tables, chairs & sun shades; an annual barbeque for clients, parents and carers; curtains for the main halls in the Day Service; rise-and-fall beds; a kitchen facility to teach all clients (including those in wheelchairs) how to prepare simple meals, in safety; trips and other activities; a swing which can be used by clients in wheelchairs A major project, costing over £17,000, was the landscaping of part of the gardens which could not be used by the clients because of the slope. To encourage clients to enjoy gardening, raised borders were created along one side of the terrace. HELP IS ALWAYS NEEDED – WILL YOU HELP US? We need help, both with fund-raising and helping out at the centre. If you can spare some time, occasionally, we would welcome you to join with Friends of Seeleys House, to make life a little more enjoyable for disadvantaged persons who live locally in our community.
