Donation from Simplyhealth will help Brainwave unlock more children’s’ potential

We are delighted to announce that we have received a very generous donation of £79,245 from Simplyhealth.

We have been operating for over 30 years but this is one of the largest donations we have ever received. The healthcare provider has agreed to support us in a number of ways including sponsoring one of our physiotherapists who delivers therapy for the children and by funding maintenance and running costs of the hydrotherapy pool at the Charity’s centre in Bridgwater, Somerset.  The donation will also go towards sponsoring ten families to follow the programme of assessments and therapy that we offer.

Phil Edge, Brainwave Chief Executive, said

We are delighted that Simplyhealth has made this fantastic donation. T his will help us to enable children to reach their full potential and achieve their developmental milestones through the provision of our therapy programme.  The benefits of the programme include improvements in gross and fine motor skills, communication and cognitive development.  The support from Simplyhealth will enable us to help so many more children and we are extremely grateful.

Mark Hamson, Chairman of Simplyhealth Charitable Committee comments:

At Simplyhealth, we’re committed to helping people make the most of life and we believe that Brainwave does just that by helping children living with a disability to unlock their potential to achieve greater independence.

We’re delighted to support Brainwave by sponsoring one of their physiotherapists and covering the cost of the hydrotherapy pool which are crucial parts of the charity’s service.  We wish the ten families we’re following through the programme well, and hope that they learn many tips and skills they can use at home.

Simplyhealth helps people access affordable healthcare through health cash plans, dental plans and mobility and living aids.  It follows mutual values and donates more than £1m to health related charities every year.
