Logistics Company boost charity tally
3:34pm Monday 11th February 2013 in Community
Europa Worldwide Logistics has presented the Freddie Farmer Foundation with a cheque for £1,000.
Chief Executive Russell Keep presented young Freddie Farmer, aged 8, with the cheque on 25th January at Europa’s headquarters on Hailey Road in Erith, south-east London.
This most recent donation brings the foundation’s fund-raising tally to £150,000 in its campaign to raise £250,000 to set up and run a specialised physiotherapy centre in south-east London for children and young people with cerebral palsy and serious mobility problems.
Freddie gave a touching speech afterwards thanking everyone there for helping the foundation.
“We’re very proud of our Freddie”, said mum, Deanne. “We didn't tell him what to say he just took it upon himself to thank everyone on behalf of the foundation.”
The Freddie Farmer Foundation was set up in February 2011 to establish a specialised physiotherapy centre in south-east London for children and young people with cerebral palsy and severe mobility problems. The inspiration behind it all is eight-year-old Freddie Farmer who was born at 28 weeks with cerebral palsy, weighing just 2lb 12oz.
