As a local small business, we get inundated throughout the year with requests for support for charity and fundraising events. To date, we have provided much support to these very worthwhile causes and efforts, as and when we have been approached.
However, we have now decided that we are going to support a single charity for the year and focus all our fundraising efforts on this single charity.
For 2018, we have decided to support The Brain Tumour Charity. At the beginning of this year, the 11 year old son of a very dear friend of goPhysio’s founders was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Brain tumours receive very little of government research funds, yet it is the second most prevalent of childhood cancers. So, we have decided to focus our fundraising efforts on this charity for 2018.
Our fundraising target of £1,250 funds just 1 days worth of research. The charity also runs the HeadSmart Campaign - a crucial campaign that help's raise awareness of the signs of a brain tumour.
As part of our role with the Eastleigh 10k event in March 2018, we will be providing pre and post race massages. In exchange we will be taking donations towards our chosen charity.
We hope to have some additional fund raising events planned for the year.
