What we do
We set up Freddie's Friends in 2008 in memory of our lovely son. In the years since, with the help of our wonderful fundraisers, donors and sponsors, Freddie's have been able to provide specialist equipment, support and respite for disabled children and their families.
What we did:
With your help we have been able to help the special children & organisations below.
We have just funded a special swing for Ben. Ben cannot see so loves the wind on his face. Lovely happy boy xx
Lovely Finleigh on his big beanbag which will keep him safe. A very special boy xx
A Proloquo2Go for Alistair
A Voice.... Alistair is an 11 year old boy who suffers from Angelman Syndrome & Epilepsy. We have funded a Proloquo2Go to help Alistair with his communication outside of his immediate family e.g his carers, at his youth club and peers.
With your support & fundraising we can continue to help special children like Alistair xx
Charlie & Aiden
Thanks to your wonderful support we passed funding for two epilepsy monitor's for Charlie & Aiden, hopefully this will give some peace of mind for their parents during the night.
Harry applied for funding for a Playpak
( www.fireflyfriends.com/playpak ).
Harry who suffers from Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy, Kidney Failure & Global Development Delays will benefit greatly from the Playpak. It will help him sit unaided, and support him when laid on his tummy lifting his head and support for his spine.
It's also very portable which will be easier for Harry's parents to take with them.
Freddies Christmas Panto
Our fantastic Christmas Panto was a lovely occasion for over 70 of our special children and parents to relax and socialise.
