Heidi Hopley was a dear friend, colleague and confidant to all of the staff, and a much loved therapist to the children at Brainwave. Following her passing in October 2016, we wanted to acknowledge Heidi’s life with a symbol of our friendship with a fitting tribute to her for use by the children who attend Brainwave, who she deeply treasured.

Brainwave employees have arranged this crowd funder in order to purchase a Light & Sound Archway which will be placed in our Sensory Garden. This will be dedicated to the memory of Heidi; it will be her garden.

We thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share in Heidi’s passion of helping the children who attend Brainwave. This arch would provide the South West Centre with a beautiful tribute, to Heidi, which could be enjoyed and shared by all the children who come to the centre, as well as visitors to the site.

In return for your donation, you will be assisting with the purchase of this item, as well as having your name added to a Donor Mural (please add the name/group you would like added in the comments boc when donating) which will be displayed at the South West Centre. Any funds raised in excess of the project cost will be used to benefit disabled children in other priority areas.

We appreciate every pledge, no matter how small.
