Group Donated £6,000 to SNAPS To Help Fund Therapy Services
Children with additional needs across Leeds will continue to benefit from vital physiotherapy and support with thanks to a grant from the Yorkshire West Riding Freemasons.
The grant of £6,000 made to SNAPS (Special Needs And Parent Support) Yorkshire will help to fund hydrotherapy and swimming lessons, rebound therapy (physiotherapy using a trampoline), structured play and support for children and their families.
SNAPS was formed by a group of parents in 2004 to meet a gap in provision and continues to deliver regular physiotherapy – that can often be difficult or expensive to access – out of two sites in Leeds. Alongside hydrotherapy and rebound therapy, SNAPS offers an inclusive and supportive environment that welcomes the whole family.
Jenny Sellers, community fund-raiser for the charity, said: “We are so grateful to the Yorkshire West Riding Freemasons for their generous grant. SNAPS does not receive statutory funding for the work we do, so the generosity of groups like the Freemasons is essential to help us deliver our fantastic services.”
Michael Holmes from Yorkshire West Riding Freemasons said: “We are very pleased to be able to help SNAPS who do such an outstanding job helping children with additional needs and their families access physiotherapy and support.”
Expert Opinion“We are proud to support SNAPS and the work done by the charity across Leeds.
This generous grant from the Freemasons will no doubt help them to continue with what they do to help families in the area.”
