These are some of the children the Danny Green Fund has been able to help over the last few years:
Annabel has taken part in physiotherapy at Benfleet Physiotherapy to help her balance and to help her to walk independently. The Danny Green Fund also provided Annabel with an iPad while she was receiving rehabilitation at Tadworth Rehabilitation Centre to help her hand-eye co-ordination and to help her keep in touch with her friends while away from home. The physio sessions have really made a difference to Annabel’s recovery.
Charlotte is taking part in physiotherapy session which are focusing on testing her balance and coordination. Charlotte particularly enjoys taking part in the boxing aspect of the sessions.
The Danny Green Fund have funded soft tissue therapy and restorative exercise sessions for Charlie which helps to restore a more natural, functional gait by breaking down Charlie’s walking technique into smaller parts and addressing restrictions at every level starting at the foot, ankle, calf, knee, hip and pelvis to ensure a stable, steady transferring of weight.
