Pilates Health Physiotherapy has always supported charities, but this year, 2020 we have worked with particular enthusiasm to support a charity that will help our team to bring Cancer Rehabilitation services to ANYONE who could benefit. 

The Pinc & Steel Foundation UK & Ireland (https://pincandsteel.co.uk/pinc-and-steel-foundation/)  was launched in the UK in August, 2020 and Pilates Health Physiotherapy got behind this charity with several events.

 

Events included:

  • Raffle Draw for a 4 week block of Zoom Unlimited classes each month from September to December.

  • A Free HIIT Pilates class in September, 2020

  • Free Cancer Rehab Webinar in October, 2020

Liz Yull has also had fun in the lead up to Christmas posting the

12 Days of Christmas Aerobics Challenge on FaceBook which has attracted more interest and donations.

2020 has been a difficult year for us all, but cancer treatments and the subsequent effects that they can have on quality of life cannot wait for the pandemic to recede.

Please consider supporting the Pinc & Steel Foundation so that we can offer Cancer Rehabilitation services that will improve the quality of life of anyone who has had a cancer diagnosis.  Here is our Just Giving Page:

All money raised goes to Pinc & Steel Foundation UK & Ireland and will be used to support cancer patients in the community in which the money has been raised (ie The Chilterns)

Christmas 2018 Charity Drive

Florence Nightingale Hospice

Charities like Florence Nightingale Hospice provide important patient, family and close friend support through all stages of incurable disease, with emphasis on improving and maintaining quality of life.  

In 2019, Pilates Health Physiotherapy have launched a PINC Cancer Care programme, so supporting any charity that encourages positive lifestyle changes for better quality of life, no matter what life stage, is very important to our philosophy.  Many thanks to all who contributed to this charity drive which raised £1350 to help fund the services provided by Florence Nightingale Hospice:

Christmas 2017 Charity Drive

Every year, Pilates Health Physiotherapy supports a charity at Christmas. Christmas is a time of giving, and what better way than to help a charity that could use a little bit of extra financial support.  Last year, PHP supported Samaritans, and we raised in excess of £3,000 which was a brilliant effort for a charity that provides support in the community at times of crisis.

This year, Pilates Health Physiotherapy has chosen SarcoidosisUK.  A little known charity for a little known disease. 

 

Every year in the UK around 3,000 people are diagnosed with sarcoidosis.  Sarcoidosis is a condition where lumps called granulomas develop at different sites within the body. These granuloma are made up of clusters of cells involved in inflammation. If many granuloma form in an organ, it can prevent that organ from working properly. Sarcoidosis can affect many different parts of the body. It often affects the lungs but can also affect the skin, eyes, joints, nervous system, heart and other body parts.   For further information, please following this link:

SarcoidosisUK will benefit from the money raised, not only to help those who suffer from Sarcoidosis, but will also support research into its cause which is currently unknown. SarcoidosisUK research budget is doubled by the British Lung Foundation meaning we can make a real difference in finding a cure for sarcoidosis.

The reason we have chosen SarcoidosisUK this year is because we have experienced first hand how this disease can affect the lives of those we love.
