A £10,000 Christmas grant from Blackpool based Kentown Wizard Foundation has been awarded to Rainbow House to benefit children and young people with physical and neurological disabilities.
The Christmas bonus will help Rainbow House, based in Mawdesley, continue to support 90 families a week mainly from the Lancashire area including Blackpool and Wyre and expand their services.
Their specialist service is Conductive Education which is a complex programme using repetitive learning to re-train the brain. Bespoke sessions are designed to increase mobility, communication and independence whilst rehabilitating, educating and being fun all the same time. Other services include physiotherapy, rebound and sensory therapy and multidisciplinary.
Margaret Ingram CEO of the Kentown Wizard Foundation says “We’re delighted to be supporting Rainbow House. Their vision is to run a centre of excellence for children with life limiting disabilities whilst inspiring and empowering them to become more independent and increasing their life skills”
Ben Blackman, CEO of the Legacy Rainbow House added
“We are very grateful to the Kentown Wizard Foundation for their generous grant which makes a significant difference to the services we can provide enabling children to reach milestones that their families were told may never be possible.”
The Kentown Wizard Foundation was set up in 2015 by Blackpool born entrepreneur Ken Townsley with the sole aim of helping children who suffer from life limiting illnesses and disabilities. Grants by invitation only.
