With your help, we can make a real difference to spinal cord injury patients!

If you’ve ever been affected by a spinal cord injury, you’ll know how difficult the experience can be. Patients often spend months in hospital, where they can find themselves dealing with paralysis or other life-altering injuries. It can take a long time for patients to perform general day-to-day tasks again – which can lead to them feeling lonely and depressed.

But we, as a charity, are committed to working with our hospitals to help make a meaningful difference - that is why we are running this appeal to help support the Princess Royal Spinal Injuries Centre.

A donation today will make life that little bit easier for local people dealing with the aftermath of a spinal injury – providing physical and emotional support where it’s needed most.

Gifts from supporters like you are already making a difference to patients’ lives in the Centre. Take the specialist Functional Electrical Stimulation bike that donors provided for patients. This new equipment aids rehabilitation, applying a small electrical current to paralysed or weakened leg muscles, which reduces muscle spasm, improves strength and range of movement, and increases circulation. By giving patients access to this additional equipment, donors like you are helping local patients recover more quickly, reducing the impact that their injury has on their life outside hospital. 

Gifts from supporters like you are also helping patients feel happier in hospital – it has enabled us, as a charity, to fund an Activity Coordinator, helping to keep patients stimulated and entertained by providing a range of different activities - including arts, gardening and bingo - for them to take part in. 

Help patients feel happier in hospital

When anybody is stuck in hospital for such a long time, it’s easy to feel isolated. Activities like arts and craft sessions break up this monotony, encourage patients to socialise and form friendships, and can also aid hand-eye coordination.  

These are just examples of the wonderful things a donation could do for patients in the Princess Royal Spinal Injuries Centre.

So please, help us to make a real difference to the lives of patients with spinal cord injuries. It would mean the world to them, and it would mean the world to us. Together, we can do something really special. Thank you.
