To mark 25 years since it was founded in 1998, volunteers at The Disability Foundation (TDF), based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, have spruced up the organisation’s facilities.
A grant from the Screwfix Foundation kicked off the project on Friday, January 26, and volunteers then had 72 hours to paint the rooms in time to reopen on Monday morning.
Therapy services co-ordinator Patricia Greene said: “The volunteers managed to give the whole centre a proper makeover! We want to offer a huge thank you to everyone who took part.”
TDF has a team of more than 20 wellbeing practitioners and five therapy rooms. It offers a range of face-to-face support such as massage, osteopathy and counselling to people with any disability, plus their families, on a donation-led basis. Carers, care workers and NHS staff are also welcome to make use of its services.
