Friends and family of a much-loved charity ambassador gathered at the Freddie Farmer Foundation physiotherapy centre on Elliott Road, Bromley on 20 April for the official opening of its new bedsit facility.

The new bedsit has been designed for families with a disabled child, who travel from all over the UK, to stay onsite in a purpose-built facility.

The bedsit, called ‘Stuart’s Dormy House’, was named in memory of charity ambassador Stuart Spicer who passed away in December 2018.

Charity Centre Manager, Karen Smith, said: “Stuart was one of life’s all round good, kind and generous people and we were so very lucky to have him as our friend. It was great to see so many people gather to remember Stuart and all the good work he has done for the Foundation and to celebrate the opening of our new centre bedsit, which we opened in his name.

“Disabled children need a lot of specialist equipment and as some of our families travel a long way, it is not always possible for them to bring all that they need for their stay. The new bedsit will supply everything they need to help them while they are here.”

The Freddie Farmer Foundation physiotherapy centre opened on 20 April 2015 and it’s the only independent centre of its kind in South East England that provides intensive physiotherapy programmes for disabled children across the region.

The centre supports disabled children aged 3–16 years with cerebral palsy, developmental delay/co-ordination disorders and other non-progressive neurological disorders and syndromes.
