Rob Taylor, Earthworks Director, presented a Citroen Nemo van to the Chapel-En-Le-Frith Mobile Physiotherapy Service at a ceremony held at the NT Killingley offices today.
The service provides a mobile physiotherapy service in the rural district chapel-en-le-frith parishes and High Peak area. Treatments are made available to patients physically incapable of attending hospital and who are not able to afford the full cost of home treatment by private physiotherapists.of
Rob Taylor of NT Killingley said “The work that the Chapel-En-Le-Frith Mobile Physiotherapy Service performs is a valuable asset to the rural community here in North Derbyshire. When we heard that they were struggling to reach patients who desperately needed their services we just had to step in and help.
As a successful local business, we feel it is part of our social responsibility to support the local community. The donation of a van for us was a small price to pay that will allow the physiotherapists to continue their fantastic work”.
Chapel-En-Le-Frith Mobile Physiotherapy Service Chairman Alastair Knox was joined by Lesley Boler, Sue Dewhurst and Jan Westwood for the handover.
Lesley added "The generosity of Rob and NT Killingley is overwhelming. Our fundraising to buy a replacement vehicle had proved to be slower than anticipated.
When Rob contacted us offering to support our charity by donating a van we were all speechless and couldn't believe our luck.
It is a huge relief for us all to know that our physiotherapist will be able to reach her elderly housebound patients in safety and at the same time have ample room to carry her equipment, for many years to come. We cannot thank you enough".
