Heel & Toe Children’s Charity was awarded £10’000 by People’s Postcode Trust, a grant-giving charity, funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
The organisation will use the money towards a sensory garden at their new building.
The project will equip and landscape a sensory garden at the charities new building based in Pelton, Chester-le-Street. Heel & Toe Children’s Charity provides free conductive education therapy to children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities from their current centre based in Framwellgate Moor, County Durham. The charity is rapidly expanding and has secured their own building to reach out to more children across the North East and surrounding areas.
Jane Long – Development Manager at Heel & Toe “We are thrilled to receive this fantastic amount which will help children who attend our centre who have profound sensory issues by means of interaction in a sensory garden. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible”.
