Walk for Walkers

At the end of April Phil Hambledon will be walking the Jurassic Coast for 5 days from Seaton in Devon to Poole, Dorset. Mark Painter will be joining Phil for
4 days walking from Seaton to Worth Matravers.

Phil and Mark are undertaking this journey to raise monies to purchase
‘Walkers’, walking frames for children with neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, for the Child Development Centre at Poole Hospital.

These Walkers can completely change a child’s life by allowing them to gain their mobility which otherwise may be almost exclusively via a wheelchair. The Walkers meet a wide range of therapeutic needs such as encouraging weight bearing and developing muscle strength.

Currently, when a need for a Walker is identified a child may have to wait up to 6 months for their application to be processed. Phil and Mark would therefore like to try and raise sufficient funds in order to purchase a range of different sized Walkers that can be used temporarily by children whilst their applications are being considered. This will be a real challenge as each Walker costs £700+.
