INS swings into action for Brainwave Centre sensory zone
International Nuclear Services (INS), the Warrington-based specialist nuclear transport company, has donated £760 to the Brainwave North-west Centre in Birchwood to support the construction of its new outdoor sensory area.
The money, which was raised by a cake sale, a raffle and a company charity tenpin bowling competition, supplements resource donations from INS which will see its employees build the playground in the next couple of months.
Pam Betts, business improvement manager for INS, said: “This is just the start of what will be a really exciting project for both Brainwave and INS. The opportunity for us to build the sensory area will bring benefits for our company in terms of team building, while it will also allow us to support a very worthy local charity.”
Jackie Addison of the Brainwave NW Centre, said: “The donation fires the starting gun on a project that will significantly upgrade our facilities for visiting families. Currently there is no outdoor space where they can relax and spend time together in between therapy sessions. So creating that with the added sensory elements will be a great addition to our north-west centre
“We’re really grateful for the support from INS, as well as our landlord, our neighbours Birchwood Shopping Centre and also Business in the Community who connected Brainwave with INS through its Business 4 Warrington action group.”
Brainwave Centre is also requesting donations from local business in Warrington for landscaping features and materials for the sensory garden. Any businesses who are able to support should contact Jackie Addison on 01925 825547.
Brainwave Centres in Warrington, Somerset and Essex, offer families with children who Cerebral Palsy, developmental delay, brain injuries, or other genetic conditions, the chance to be assessed and then taught by experts bespoke therapy programmes for their child. This strengthens the involvement of parents in the care of their children, as well as enabling therapy to be carried out by parents in the home.
