Children we have supported since January

We are delighted that we have also been able to help many local children over the first half of the year with pieces of equipment they desperatley needed to help make their lives a little easier.

Maxwell is a 3 and has Austism. He needed a sturdy buggy

Niamh is a little girl who has a condition called Eythlmalonic Encephalopathy she also need a special buggy.

Ronnie has neurological disorder and significant learning difficulties. We bought him an iPad with special apps to help with his development.

Zachery is a three and a half year old little boy with severe autism. He is non verbal, has very little concentration to play and like most autistic children lives in his own little world. We donated some sensory equipment for his bedroom.

Teenager Nazia needed a specialist Sleep System at night. Not only would it improve her comfort during the night, it would slow down the progression of her undiagnosed neurological disability and help maintain her health for as long as possible.

Arranged for 4 Double Buggies to be delivered to Big Steps Nursery in Salford so they can take their children out to the park. Many of the children don’t get park experiences and opportunities to be social outdoors so aids their development across the board.

Donated a special Eye Gaze Tool for 3 year old Ronnie who has autism. Ronnie at present is non verbal , the Eye Gaze Tool is a communication tool that will last him for years.

Heidi-Lou suffers with quadriplegic cerebral palsy, which effects her whole body so is unable to sit or walk. We were so happy to donate a Mustang Walker for her so she can play out with her friends.

Photos of some of these children will be upload on the ‘Children we have helped’ page

Bellagio Broadway Ball

Oh what a night!

This year’s Bellagio Ball was probably the best we have ever held. The spectacular evening was all about amazing entertainment. Held once again at the iconic Midland Hotel in May and sponsored by Mulbury Homes, the room was themed with each table named after a top Broadway show. A delicious 3 course dinner was enjoyed by the guests, who all participated in the special chocolate box raffle winning some amazing prizes and all enjoyed the fun of Heads n Tails.  But the night really belonged to the talented kids, teenagers and staff of Freak Dance who staged a show good enough to grace any Broadway Theatre.  After a tremendous auction lead by Paul Crone, revellers then took to the dancefloor to dance to Dominic Halpin & his band followed by DJ Jack playing the night out.  This event raised £22,000, thanks to all who bought tickets, entered into the raffle & auction, to Cerberus Group for their kind donation and Mulbury Homes for their generous sponsorship. A magical night that will remain in our memories for a long time.

Christmas in Manhattan Winter Ball

This years Winter Ball was held for the first time at Hotel Football, with the theme being Christmas in Manhattan. It was an amazing night, probably one of the best with the Frost Foundation.  The room looked stunning, food was delicious, service excellent and the great DJ and singer, Lareena Mitchell, had the dancefloor full all night. Great Christmas party so much so we’ve booked to go again next year.

Saturday 9th December – all tables are already sold out!

Christmas Campaign 2016

With less than 100 days until Christmas our Christmas Campaign is kicking off early this year, as we envisage this to be a really busy one. I have been in contact with Barnardos, an organisation we support every year with presents and food hampers. This year we are concentrating on their teenagers 16-18 year olds. They constantly support about 100 local teenagers, with most of them facing Christmas alone and many receiving no gifts at all. The Frost Foundation will donate food hampers and gifts but if you would be willing to add an extra gift to your list for these young people that would be very well received, as then they will have a couple of present on Christmas morning. I know teenagers can be difficult to buy for but some ideas include toiletries, make up, fragrances, jewellery, hats, scarves, gloves – all these are luxuries to these kids. Presents don’t need to be wrapped please just put them in a Christmas gift bag. Please get in touch if you can help. Thank you
