The fundraising raffle which took place at the Solvents Industry Association’s Annual General Meeting at Mottram Hall in October has raised £1,000 for the Children’s Charity, Brainwave.
With bases in Bridgwater, Witham and Warrington and satellite clinics in London and Scotland, Brainwave is a charity that exists to help children with disabilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence by aiming to improve mobility, communication skills and learning potential through a range of educational and physical therapies.
Andrew Norman, SIA General Secretary said, ‘The total raised has equalled our record sum for an SIA event. Having met with the speech and language therapists at Brainwave in Warrington, it is clear that children with disabilities can be offered the hope of full and happy lives through the intensive therapy provided and the non-verbal communication techniques used at these excellent centres. We are delighted that the money is going to such a worthy cause’.
Many thanks go to Alcohols Limited, Hayman Group and to Mottram Hall for generously donating prizes for the event.
