A WOKINGHAM charity has received £1,000 to help young people with disabilities.
Housebuilder Persimmon Homes gifted the money to Liquid Vibrations – the country’s only musical hydrotherapy practitioner.
It offers children the chance to relax in a different way. Floating and supported in a specially adapted hydrotherapy pool, free of pain and restriction, they are immersed in music they hear under the water surface.
Liquid Vibrations helps specialist schools install underwater sound systems in their on-site hydrotherapy pools and train staff.
Spokesperson Georgina Densley said: “Our work makes a real impact on the wellbeing of disabled young people. We are raising funds to ensure that we can subsidise costs for schools so more can take part.
“By working with schools in this way we can ensure that the practice is embedded into their school activities, so that more children and young people can benefit over a longer period of time.”
Persimmon Homes Thames Valley sales director, Rachel Faulkner, said the advanced form of therapy can bring great benefits to children and young people.
“The events of the last year have clearly hindered Liquid Vibrations’ ability to practice its valuable work and affected its fundraising efforts,” she said. “As such we consider the charity a very worthy recipient of funding from our Community Champions programme.”
Each month, the housebuilder selects two charities or causes to receive up to £1,000.
