Introducing the World's First Table Tennis Therapy Table!
The BAT Foundation is a health & well being charity who have created the world’s first table tennis table specifically designed to enhance the lives for those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Halifax Greater London are running a campaign to raise enough funds to donate a BAT Therapy Table to a local care setting or community centre, that will be chosen by the Halifax staff in that area.
Halifax will match fund the monies raised helping to create a dementia friendly community and make an even greater positive impact to the lives of local people. Every donation, whatever the size, makes a huge difference.
How the BAT Therpay Table helps...
It's white playing surface creates contrast that enhances focus, attention, and perception, whist the extended borders help the table stand out from the background. The attached side panels increase spatial awareness and create a secure, non-distracting, and comforting play zone, whilst also boosting peripheral vision by keeping the ball in play for longer.
Table tennis trumps most other exercise intervention by being a social activity that promotes joy and laughter between individuals and just one BAT Therapy Table can provide a truly positive therapeutic impact; not just short term, to an individual - but long term, to an entire care community.
Going even further...
If you fancy doing something more to help, you don't have to just donate here, you could organise a fundraising event amongst your friends, family, or colleagues to make an even bigger contribution to help reach the target.
Get in touch with your (Community Ambassadors) if you have an idea for a larger event that you want colleagues to get involved with.
