24 May Petts Wood man donates 360-degree virtual tour to Freddie Farmer Foundation
Disabled children and their families can now take a 360-degree virtual tour of the Freddie Farmer Foundation’s new bedsit facility from the comfort of their own homes.
Virtual reality media company BLUR Three Sixty uses a 3D camera and specialist software to map internal and external spaces and create tours for events, construction, architecture, schools, nurseries, hotels, bars, clubs and holiday villas.
Now it has donated its services to the Freddie Farmer Foundation in Elliott Road to give the charity the opportunity to showcase its new bedsit to a wider audience.
Charity officer Karen Smith said: “BLUR Three Sixty have provided us with a fantastic 3D scan of our new bedsit giving new families from further afield the opportunity to walk through the area and see all the facilities.
Business owner Neil Ferguson, who lives in Petts Wood, added: “I wanted the charity to show off the new bedsit to people who might not be able to just ‘pop in’ and visit.
“The Freddie Farmer Physiotherapy Centre offers excellent services and this is demonstrated by how far people travel to get treatment.
“My son Jack has cerebral palsy and attends the centre and every time he visits we see improvement and a boost in his confidence.
“The centre is amazing and sometimes it can be hard to explain the facilities, layout and equipment used by the skilled physios.
“All the staff and fundraisers do an amazing job for the children who visit the centre, including my son Jack. I wanted to give something back and hopefully help the centre.”
