Cleaswell Hill School is a school for children aged 2-19 with additional needs and/or disabilities.
The school is looking to build a hydrotherapy pool, however due to government cuts their dream is becoming unreachable.
For many, the moments spent in the hydro pool are pure moments of happiness, freedom, pain relief and independence. The warm water helps children relax when their muscles are tense either due to pain or a neurological condition. They can then perform exercises in the water to help improve the range of movement or strengthen their muscles. The comfort and therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy to those who often have restricted movement and limbs in pain are immeasurable.
Over the last few years the School’s pupils have been attending the Alan Shearer Centre and have been using the hydro pool there; however there is often not enough time available meaning that pupils who vitally need hydro therapy are not able to access it.
The Lions Club of Morpeth is committed to helping the School their ambitious target of £550,000.
