Friends and family of a much-loved charity ambassador gathered at the Freddie Farmer Foundation physiotherapy centre on Elliott Road, Bromley on 20 April for the opening of a new bedsit facility.
The new bedsit has been designed for families with a disabled child who travel from all over the UK to stay onsite in a purpose-built facility.
Called ‘Stuart’s Dormy House’, the bedsit was named in memory of charity ambassador Stuart Spicer who sadly passed away in December 2018.
It was great to see so many people gather to remember Stuart and all the good work he has done for the Foundation and to celebrate the opening of our new centre bedsit, which we opened in his name.
Disabled children need a lot of specialist equipment and as some of our families travel a long way, it is not always possible for them to bring all that they need for their stay. The new bedsit will supply everything they need to help them while they are here.
The first family to use the accomodation was father and son Anthony and Stanley Senior from Wimborne, Dorset, who stayed for a week.
Dad Stanley said: "The new family accommodation is just perfect. Very nicely decorated, spacious, homely, comfy beds and well equipped.
"It’s totally accessible, and the bathroom is a great size.
It’s also private, feels very secure and is surprisingly quiet at night. One less thing to worry about next time, knowing we can stay here with just a one minute commute!"
