THE POLICE REHABILITATION CENTRE, FLINT HOUSE CELEBRATES £2,500 GIFT FROM THE PATRON’S FUND
Flint House is celebrating after receiving a £2,500 gift from The Patron’s Fund, the charitable fund set up to acknowledge the work of the charitable organisations for which Her Majesty, The Queen acts as a Patron, on the occasion of her 90th birthday.
Around £750,000 is available to distribute between nearly 300 charities and other organisations in the UK and the Commonwealth. The Fund received generous donations from a range of supporters; including individual donors, businesses, schools, community groups and the proceeds from The Patron’s Lunch, the event on the Mall last June.
“Our mission at The Police Rehabilitation Centre is to provide the highest standards of individually planned, intensive, rehabilitation services for sick and injured, serving and retired police officers”
PR and Communications Manager, Kevin Bishop went on to say …“As a charity over 125 years old and dedicated to serving and retired UK Police Officers, we are proud of having Royal Patronage that dates back to the first Convalescent Home and Orphanage at Clarendon Villas, Hove, in 1890.
Flint House is committed to providing the best people, facilities and equipment for our patients both past, present and future. This gift has enabled the Centre to purchase two state of the art massage chairs that can assist in pain relief, relaxation and overall restorative health and wellbeing treatment across a wide spectrum of physical and mental conditions. We thank the Trustees of The Patrons Fund for their charitable gift”
Sir Stuart Etherington, Chair of The Board of Trustees for The Patron’s Fund, said:
‘The Patron’s Fund is very pleased to be able to support Flint House with its valuable work. The Police Rehabilitation Centre, Flint House is among hundreds of organisations for which The Queen acts as a Patron, which between them make a difference to causes and communities in the UK and throughout the Commonwealth.’
