Your legacy can make a difference

Over the years; legacies large and small have funded vital equipment and projects - enabling children with brain injury to reach their goals and where possible, return home to their families, back into their community, back to school and back to their friends!

Gifts in Will really do make a difference, here’s how: New Cheyne Therapy Centre – thanks to legacy donations totalling £137,995. Opened in 2002, a purpose-built bright and inviting therapy and education centre, that offers essential facilities for rehabilitation. It is core to specialist therapy sessions, whether it be taking steps again in the modified gym, attending speech and language sessions or stimulation from the wondrous multi-sensory experiences – this centre is pivotal in development and rehabilitation.  Specially adapted minibus – thanks to a gift in the Will of Basil and Bunnie Bastin. Our modified bus was bought with a legacy and is essential for getting the children to their medical appointments and out on outings. It’s used daily, so look out for us!     Cedar Garden – Mary Fryer left a £10,000 legacy for the improvement of our sensory garden. Children love being outside; our Cedar Garden is the perfect place for children with brain injury to play safely and engage in multi-sensory experiences outdoors. Fully adapted landscape that provides the freedom to get around in wheelchairs, enabling them to play, grow vegetables and simply enjoy the beautiful plants and flowers around them. Affordable staff accommodation – a generous legacy made it possible to refurbish our main home.  Originally built in 1940; our Main Home provides affordable accommodation for care and nursing staff, and was in much need of renovation. Thanks to a generous legacy, this was made possible in 2011, as the Will stated a wish ‘to help the staff as well as the children’. This meant our vintage building could be updated and equipped for modern living; which meant staff no longer had to choose what to plug into the single electrical socket! Imagine what your legacy could do towards building brighter futures for children with brain injury. To find out more about leaving a gift in your Will phone Mandy on 01737 365 081 or email
