Help bibic therapist Chelsey get off the ground to raise vital funds
Sky’s the limit for our thrill-seeking therapist Chelsey
Adventurous Chelsey Oxley from South Petherton is taking part in a special charity tandem skydive on 22 July 2018 at Dunkeswell Airfield to raise money for bibic, a cause close to her heart.
Chelsey works here at bibic as a Developmental Therapist supporting children and their families living with the challenges of neurological and genetic conditions. Chelsey’s going the extra mile in July to raise money and awareness about the charity’s service she’s so passionate about. Chelsey says,
“Every day desperate parents look to me for expertise and advice for help to improve the life of their child. This is the hardest part of the job but also the most rewarding. By the end of our time together, it’s great knowing that I’ve empowered them with information to support their child, so they know how to help them cope better in different situations and help them reach their potential. I love my job and seeing the difference our service makes is so rewarding.
So I’m ready to jump out a plane and raise money for these amazing families who need our vital service; we receive no funding, so donations and fundraising challenges and events are essential to keep us going.”
At times, living with disabilities and difficulties can become overwhelming and parents, carers and teachers need bibic’s expertise to help them better understand and support a child’s behaviour and needs. bibic’s life changing therapies and strategies empower families and professionals who want to improve the quality of life for a child both at home and school.
One mum who recently saw Chelsey to get help for her son Freddie (pictured) said that improvements in his communication and behaviour mean that Freddie and his family can now get out of the house more without worrying about meltdowns. This is making a big difference to them as a family and Freddie’s able to cope better in the world around him.
Chelsey needs your help get off the ground and into that plane which will make a difference to many more children who need bibic’s service.
Please donate whatever you can, no matter how small. Every penny goes straight to where it counts, buying equipment for bibic’s sensory and play rooms and continuing to provide life changing therapies to help children with disabilities. Thank you.
