Story

Patients and staff at Hobbs Rehabilitation South West are taking part in the Aspire Channel Swim 2018.  We are getting everyone to help us swim the distance of the Channel over 12 weeks to raise money for Aspire. 

We are holding a "Swimathon" session on 8th November in our hydro therapy pool - getting patients and staff to swim and make up some of the distance for us.  A few of our clients are also swimming lengths in their own hydrotherapy sessions to collect lengths for us.

Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a Spinal Cord Injury.  At Hobbs, we provide rehabilitation for all neuroloogical conditons and work with several SCI patient.  However, we are not able to help with other elements. This is where SCI charities such as Aspire can help.

Aspire provides the essential equipment, advice, housing and grants that spinal cord injured people need to live their lives independently. This is a big challenge, but the more we raise, the more of a difference I'll make, so please be generous!
