In memory of Freddie Appleyard.
A website to help disabled children and their families.

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.

  • Stan, Freddie, Ben, Thomas and Mcauley

    Stan, Freddie, Ben, Thomas and Mcauley have all been helped financially towards the cost of a Sensory Integration Therapy either through Barnardo's or Connect Therapy Services, this therapy is so very important in relation to the gaining a better understanding of a child's sensory processing and the associated functional challenges they face in day to day life.

  • 2019: Lilly


    Lilly is a beautiful girl with many problems including epilepsy, right hemiplegia and visual impairment, we were delighted to fund a specialist nest swing for Lilly to enjoy in her garden.

  • 2019: Edie
