THANK YOU for visiting the Finola Trust website

WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING?

The Finola Trust van (19 years old) is on its final year ..  however we want to share with you some WONDERFUL NEWS heard just prior to the UK lock-down. 

A truly kind and generous person has donated a brand new Business Renault Master Long Wheelbase Van to the Finola Trust.

THIS MEANS OUR TARGET IS NOW ADAPTATION COSTS & IN OUR CURRENT WORLD CLIMATE IS A MUCH MORE REALISTIC AIM

HOW MUCH WILL WE HAVE TO RAISE?

Altthough costs are currently not confirmed we understand it could be in the region of £15 – £20,000 to be confirmed
 
Once the quotation is confirmed we will break it down and advise you here.

BOBATH SCOTLAND, GLASGOW (now CEREBRAL PALSY SCOTLAND), – why does Finola still need this?

As an adult person with cerebral palsy she is not entitled to regular NHS physiotherapy provision (unless she has a specific problem). In children services she received physiotherapy/hydrotherapy on a regular basis.

Without therapy there is a real risk of contractures and pain. Bobath statistics show that 3 out of 4 persons with Cerebral Palsy suffer pain. Currently Finola is one of the lucky ones and we are working hard to keep her that way. We have to continue to raise funds to allow Finola to have regular physiotherapy from Bobath Scotland – cost per visit £130.

 

Thank you very much indeed for your kindness.
