Shoreham-based Independent Financial Advisers Pembroke Financial Services has donated £3,500 to support the children’s disability charity, Whoopsadaisy.
Whoopsadaisy is a small local charity based in Preston Park in Brighton which provides Conductive Education to help children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities to live life as independently as possible. Using the Hungarian method of Conductive Education, Whoopsadaisy focus on what the children can do in group sessions which the children’s parents and carers also attend.
Most of the children at Whoopsadaisy have cerebral palsy, and all of them face daily challenges in terms of their mobility, co-ordination and balance. Many of the children also have speech, communication and learning difficulties.
Whoopsadaisy Trustee, Helen Palmer, said: “We are delighted with this generous donation from the directors and staff at Pembroke Financial Services. As a small local charity we rely entirely on donations like this each and every year. We simply couldn’t help disabled children without the support of our local business community.”
Pembrokes’ owners Keith Relf and Keith Bonner commented: “It is a pleasure to support this fantastic local charity – it is something we have been looking to do for a long time and we understand that our donation will be sufficient to provide the help for a child for a whole year.
We have a regular collection for the charity and promote the legendary Whoopsadaisy Bears made by the Charity’s Trustee, Helen Palmer.
We are delighted that we are able to make this further donation to support Whoopsadaisy in 2018”.
