London FA staff donation

Staff from the London Football Association paid the Freddie Farmer Foundation a visit last week to present the proceeds of their annual staff Christmas collection.

The £215 donation will go towards purchasing new equipment and accessories for the Freddie Farmer Foundation physiotherapy centre, based on Elliott Road, Bromley.

The Foundation’s charity officer, Karen Smith, said: “We are so grateful for the support of the London FA.

"We rely on therapy fees and fundraising to continue our work and cover our costs. It means a lot to have their support.

“Our dedicated team are fittingly mad about football! Our Physiotherapist, Colin Clifford, was with Millwall FC as an Academy Physiotherapist for 17 years before coming to us, and young Freddie Farmer, whom the Foundation is named after, is an avid Millwall supporter!”

The Freddie Farmer Foundation physiotherapy centre, which opened last year, boasts state of the art equipment to help mobility for children and young people aged 3-16 years with cerebral palsy and mobility problems.

Its aim is to provide unique and intensive physiotherapy to disabled children, helping them to reach their full potential.

“We chose to support the Freddie Farmer Foundation charity because they do such a fantastic job supporting disabled children and we wanted to help,” said Natalie Doyle, Senior Football Development Officer at London FA.
