Bed for Amelia
Amelia is a lovely 10yr old girl from Bury who due to several disabilities needed a
special bed so she was comfortable & safe at night. We were so pleased we could help her. This was an email I received from her Mum.
“I contacted the Frost Charitable Foundation and asked if they could help
fund a mattress for my daughter to best support her needs. Wendy couldnt have
been more helpful and supportive. Within a week the charity had arranged to
have the mattress delivered and I couldnt be more thankful. This is a truely wonderful charity and certainly there to help!”
Delighted we could help Amelia to get some decent nights sleep.
Chair for Brandon
We were contacted by the family of 3yr old Brandon, who due to having Cerebral Palsy has difficulty sitting unaided. They were in need of a special P Pod
chair to help him with his posture and he can be comfortable without any help.
The charity was so pleased to be able to help this gorgeous little boy.
His mum emailed to say;
Wheelchair for Oliver
The Frost Foundation has just delivered a lightweight wheelchair to 10yr old Oliver Hacking from Bury who was involved in a horrific accident earlier this year and had to have his leg amputated.
Ipad for Lucie
At the recent Bellagio Ball Wendy handed over a special ipad for a young girl called Lucie. Lucie is 7 years old, she is a quadraplegic, has cerebral palsy, encephalitis, has difficulties walking and communcating. She goes to a special school where she uses an ipad for education & communication. We have donated a similar ipad for her to be able to do the same at home
Varna Street Primary School
We will again be sponsoring the coach for Varna Street Primary School for their forthcoming residential trip.
Christmas 2013 was our busiest time to date. All in all we donated well over 600 presents to children who may be living in crisis at this time, along with many food hampers for lots of local needy families. As well as many local individual children we also donated to Barnardos, Oscar Brogden and his work with children in East Manchester, Bolton Womens Refuge, Bury Womens Refuge, Pride in LLeyton & the Wood St Mission. Thank you to everyone who either donated food, presents or attending our fund raising functions – your support was amazing.
Here is a one of the many thank you emails.
Hope you and all at Frost Foundation are well and had a good Christmas and new year.
We just wanted to say thank you again for all the wonderful presents and food hampers you collected for our children and their families for Christmas. Everyone was really delighted with the presents and really appreciated your help and kindness.
Thank you so much for all you have done for us over the last few months, it has really made a difference to so many of our families.
Good luck with all your good work in 2014.
Best wishes from Lesley and all at Barnardos
A treadmill for Adam:
Adam who is 5 and lives in Oldham, suffers with Spastic Cerebral Palsy. Adam had a life changing operation(Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy) in July 2012 at the St Louis Children’s Hospital, Missouri, America.
The operation has meant that Adam can now walk without his k-walker and wheelchair.
The Frost Foundation purchased a special treadmill to help Adam following his treatment.
Email recently received from Adam’s mum:
Hope you are well. Thank you for the treadmill which the charity donated. Adam is loving it and he is working very hard. Everyday since the treadmill arrived he has been using it and each day we increase his time and speed to help him get strong and fit. His balance is so much better and we see a huge difference in him. His confidence has grown and he does’nt seem as shy as he used to be.
The treadmill is part of Adam’s everyday routine and we hope to continue this hard work with him for the next couple of years or so. Adam is yet to learn to run but with the help of the treadmill I’m sure he will get there. Dr Park predicts that Adam will be running in 6 months time, so fingers crossed.
I have attached a couple of photos of Adam on his treadmill for your own use. I shall keep you updated on his progress and I hope Frost Foundation will always continue to do well in helping local children like Adam. It’s nice to see charities like yourselves helping the local community and putting smiles on childrens faces and families.
Thank you from Adam and all the best to all the staff at Frost Foundation.
A Treadmill for Nicholas:
Nicholas has just returned from the St Louis Children’s Hospital in America after having SDR surgery. This special and complex operation will help Nicholas, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, walk unaided and live a normal life. To help with his rehabilitation we have bought a Treadmill which will help his legs grow stronger.
2012 Christmas Appeal:
2012 was busier than ever and through fundraising efforts we were able to donate thousands of pounts worth of gifts and hampers to CAFT, Oscar Brogden and The Wood St Mission who all support local children and families living in crisis in the Greater Manchester area.
A Pushchair for Leighton:
We have bought and delivered a special wheelchair for a little boy with debilitating, Neimans Pick type C Disease to ensure that he is as comfortable as possible when his parents take him out. The chair will enable Lleyton to grow into it and is lightweight enough for his parents to fold it up and pack it in the car.
A Play Centre for Tess:
We have bought a split level Wendy House complete with Swings, Slide and Monkey Bars for a little girl with Alexander’s Disease so her Mummy & Daddy can help to keep her limbs strong and mobile for as long as possible.
A specialised Pushchair for Bailey:
Bailey suffers from Cerebral Palsy which makes her tire easily and unable to walk very far. At Seven she is too big for a standard buggy and her Mum struggled to get a wheelchair in and out of her car. The new chair is very light and very compact, which means many more days out for Bailey and her Mum.
A Pushchair for Macauley:
Macauley’s Mum recently made an appeal through the Bury Times for any information regarding the theft of his specialised pushchair, which had been stolen from outside their home in Ramsbottom. We have now ordered a replacement chair which will be delivered next week.
A treadmill for Ria:
