Sheffield charity receives a £9k boost from Switalskis

Leading specialist centre for children with cerebral palsy and motor disorders, Paces, has received a £9.1k donation from Switalskis, to support its work with children, adults and families in the region.

The donation by Switalskis will be used to provide Paces’ community with additional conductive education equipment. The equipment will support them in developing life-changing skills such as walking, sitting, standing, communication, eating and gaining greater independence.

Says David Hall, corporate partnership manager at Paces, “Switalskis has supported Paces for many years and we are constantly blown away by their generosity and their commitment to changing the lives of the children and adults who access Paces. Without teams like theirs we would not be able to continue to grow, reach more families and ultimately impact even more children and adults for the better, changing lives every single day. A huge thank you to the whole team at Switalskis, their support, hard work and generosity is incredible!”

Switalskis works closely with Paces professionally and two of its directors, including Suzanne Munroe, head of the clinical negligence department, have served as trustees for the charity.

Says Suzanne Munroe, “We have a deep connection with the remarkable work Paces carries out and the families the charity assists. Paces provides a safe and enjoyable environment where visitors can form lifelong friendships, and we have witnessed first-hand the profound difference the Paces team makes in the lives of families. We are thrilled to contribute to the important work the charity does across the region, providing comprehensive support that transforms the lives of families, children, and adults living with neurological conditions.”
