One of our guiding principles at Gosforth Physio and Wellness is to help others whenever and wherever we can. Although we are a very new business, we have lost no time in putting those principles into practice:
We provide free office accommodation at the clinic for Bright Red, a regional charity which aims to improve the lives and treatment of people with blood cancer across the north of England. (Read more about their valuable work at www.brightred.org.uk)
Like many businesses we have a water cooler in our reception area, for the benefit of our clients and our staff. Our AquaAid water cooler has an added benefit, too: AquaAid makes charitable donations from every sale, helping people around the world get access to clean, disease-free drinking water – something that we take for granted.
Every time we make a purchase, a donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump has been installed in Africa on our behalf and it proudly displays our company name on the village well – as you can see in the picture above. (To date AquAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia).
If you sustain an injury while training for – or competing in – a fundraising event for a registered charity, Gosforth Physio & Wellness will give you 10% off all physiotherapy and massage assessment and treatment sessions.
