Complete Care Shop’s Head of Marketing Jon Price has responded to an appeal from parents of a community special school based in Cambridgeshire for donations that would help young wheelchair users enjoy the outdoors.

Educating and supporting children with a range of needs from early years to sixth form, the Castle School aims to provide every child with a total learning experience, addressing all aspects of development.

As reported in the Lancashire Post, the school had fundraised continuously to pay for a new indoor soft playroom, however, the parent association called for charitable companies to help provide essential support to enable the students to enjoy the benefits of outdoor activities.

Answering the call, Jon arranged for the Lancashire-based online mobility retailer to deliver 30 colourful wheelchair ponchos to the SEN school, giving students in wheelchairs to participate in outdoor play with their peers.

Jon told the Lancashire Post: “Headmaster Chris Baker, his team, and the amazing parents form a wonderful community that tirelessly work miracles, every day.

“You can see the difference it makes to these children, which makes it outrageous that schools like these have to juggle and fight for even basic equipment.

“We’re looking at our product range to see what else fits, and it’s already been brilliant to enable everyone to take part in this valuable activity, whatever the good old British weather!”

In September 2018, the Complete Care Shop was acquired by NHS Healthcare for an undisclosed fee, providing NHS with access to the Complete Care Shop’s various customer channels.
