Phoebe Greenberg – September

Everyone at Frost Foundation would like to say a massive thank you to a very special young girl. Phoebe Greenberg celebrated her birthday this week and instead of the usual birthday party she took a group of her friends Tree Top Trekking and instead of presents she asked her friends to donate to the Frost Foundation. Through Phoebes wonderful selfless gesture she raised £250 which will help so many children we support. Many thanks to Phoebe and her friends you really are special people.

Heidi- Lou

Earlier on in 2017 we donated a specialist and expensive piece of equipment to a beautiful young girl called Heidi- Lou. It was so lovely to receive this message from her mum -

Hiya Wendy,
Just wanted to let you no we have received Heidi-Lou’s new walker, she loves it!!
Took it into school today and all her friends ran over saying ‘look Heidi-Lou your walking’
Made me fill up.
Thank you so much for buying this for her, it’s going to make a massive difference to her life, watching her take some steps today made her so happy :)
What your charity does is amazing and without you she wouldn’t have this amazing piece of equipment that was so needed so again thank you so much.Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, sitting

 

Mandy Farrell

Everyone at the Frost Foundation were so saddened to hear of the passing of Mandy. What an amazing character she was and great supporter of the charity. Mandy attended all our ladies events, usually one of the first to arrive, always the last to leave.  She was the soul of any party and will be sadly missed by family and friends.

We are so grateful that her family, husband Paul and children Kieron & Olivia have continued to support the Frost Foundation, so that means Mandy is always with us.

School Uniforms

During the summer the Frost Foundation bought school uniforms for 65 local families who are living in poverty. From head to toe – coats/ shirts/ polo shirts / blouses / skirts/ trousers / jumpers/ school shoes even PE kits.  Each child was also given a new school bag with bulging pencil cases.

New uniforms are so important but also can be so expensive, especially when there are a few children in the household. New uniforms can give confidence to children but also helps avoid bullying.

Fred Frost Memorial Golf Day

The annual Golf Day sponsored by Cerberus-Group Ltd was once again held at Northenden Golf Club with a full turn out of golfers.  Sadly the weather wasn’t the best with a few showers throughout the day.  But that didn’t dampen the mood, after 18 holes of golf the players enjoyed a great meal before the presentation dinner. Congratulations to Gary Morris and his pals on winning, but then so kindly donating the prizes back to auction, raising more money for the charity.

This years golf day will be held in July, when hopefully the weather will be better

Ascot Ladies Day @ Restaurant Isis

This annual event made a move in 2017 to a more local venue. The ladies arrived for a Pimms reception, looked wonderful in their ‘races outfits’ and most seemed to do well on the tote! The food was very good, 2 courses for lunch followed by afternoon tea later in the day, with an amazing array of cakes provided by Georginas Cakery. Russell Shaun held the day together, serenading the ladies through lunch, getting them giddy with a rousing singalong after food, then commentating on the racing before playing a few tunes at the end of the day.

Same place, same time next year ladies.

Last 6 Months

We’ve had such a busy time at the Frost Foundation that we just haven’t had the time to keep updating the web page. We are also in the process of having a new website built, which should now go live at the end of February. So lets get this one up to date before we move over to the more modern site. We held some amazing events in the second half of the calendar year, helped many children and made lots of new friends.

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

CO-OP LOcal Community Fund
