Therapy charity's windfall.

A CHILDREN'S charity has been given a cash boost.

Heel and Toe Children's Charity, in Durham, is celebrating after receiving a PS300 donation from the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund.

The charity provides therapy and free conductive education to children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities.

Conductive education is a combination of physiotherapy, occupational therapy and a learning system from Budapest which improves a child's movement and mobility, which in turn increases their independence and confidence.

Amanda Tweedy, development and fundraising Officer says: "We have recently purchased a new centre in Pelton, where we hope to open a new specialist gym."
