Britcom, based in Market Weighton, has sponsored the print of four photographs of sites of local interest to be placed within the Goole Neuro-Rehabilitation Centre.
In a Service User Forum at the Centre, one of the Service Users suggested that the Unit needed ‘some nicer pictures of the local area’ to be put on the walls. The Service Users accessed the local community and took photographs of local places of interest which could then be put onto canvases and displayed around the unit.
Britcom were approached by Service Manager, Rob Hall, to support the initiative by providing a donation to the activity which was quite a costly exercise, as Rob explains. “As we are in an acute Hospital setting, canvases need to meet strict infection control policies and each canvas costs around £80 each. We therefore had to look to secure donations which would allow us to display around 10 canvases around the unit to support and celebrate the goals and achievements of the Service Users. Britcom kindly came forward and offered to contribute sufficient to provide four canvases for the unit.”
Chris Urwin Joint Managing Director at Britcom said, “We felt that this was a very worthy cause, supporting our local community, and the canvases will benefit Service Users of the Centre for many years to come.”
Goole Neuro-Rehabilitation Centre is a specialist service that provides acute and post-acute residential rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injury. The Unit has 14 beds and Service Users are in the post-acute phase of their injury and still need a high level of medical and nursing input and have a range of cognitive, physical, medical, emotional and behavioural needs following a severe brain injury as well as other neurological conditions. Service Users can be resident at the Centre from between 6 weeks to anything up to a year.
