Story

Make a splash to help children like Riley

By getting in the water and taking on a challenge to raise vital funds, not only will you be making your own memories, you are enabling the children and young people that we support to make their own memories in the water, children like Riley.

Children with stiff joints, muscle spasms ormuscle wasting conditions can benefit from the therapeutic experience of water,asit can help improve their flexibility or joint range and provides thechance to improve their strength or endurance.

More importantly exercises in water give a feeling of well-being and are fun.

Riley makes a real splash whenever he visits Charlton Farm with his big sister Charlie. The hydrotherapy pool has given him a sense of freedom that other children his age might take for granted and is a fully accessible, hygienic and private space for the family to spend time making precious memories together.

The pool has also been crucial in strengthening the bond between Riley and his sister Charlie. I love that this is something they can do together. It is the simple things in life, being together in that pool makes them both so happy.
