We are delighted to announce that Frequency Telecom has selected Over The Wall as its preferred charity partner. Over The Wall specialises in providing therapeutic residential activity camps for seriously ill children.
Frequency will actively work with the organisation to provide support and generate much needed funds to help it expand and develop the amazing support it provides to both children and their families during the most testing times in their lives.
Thousands of children are affected every year by serious and life limiting illnesses. Many spend months, even years in and out of hospital undergoing treatments which can be frightening and painful. Many have endured isolation and lack of childhood experiences.
The Over The Wall camps are free and help children rebuild their confidence and self esteem by encouraging them to take part in a range of activities such as kayaking, climbing, horse riding, archery, arts & crafts, technology and media, as well as a weekly talent show and disco. The children are supported by dedicated, skilled specialists and volunteers and the breaks provide much needed respite for parents and other family members.
Frequency MD Gareth Limpenny comments, ‘When you have healthy children of your own, it makes you realise just how lucky you are. Over The Wall does a fantastic job with great benefit to the children and their families and we’re delighted to be associated with them. All of the team at Frequency are behind it and we will be looking at as many ways as possible of contributing to this extremely worthwhile charity.’
