Plans to open a physiotherapy centre for disabled children in Bromley have moved a step closer thanks to a generous donation.
Darenth Valley Golf Club captain Pam Daniell raised £2,260 through a series of events during her one-year captaincy at the club in Shoreham, in aid of the Freddie Farmer Foundation.
Nine-year-old Freddie, from Bromley, was born at 28 weeks with cerebral palsy and attends a centre in Oxford for intensive physiotherapy.
Freddie’s family have worked hard to raise £250,000 to open a new centre in Elliot Road, Bromley, so he can have the treatment more regularly.
The centre, due to open at Easter, will cater for children and young people with cerebral palsy and serious mobility problems.
It will help around 100 children a year.
Freddie is the grandson of Pam’s friend Sheila Catchesides, to whom she presented the cheque.
Charity founder Deanne Farmer, Freddie’s mother, said: “Pam is a great friend to the charity. She has worked so hard to achieve this figure, we can’t thank her enough.”
