Char­ity’s $200k win for clients

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

A CHAR­ITY that stepped in to help clients af­ter the fail­ure of Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy SA has re­ceived a $200,000 grant to help those with neu­ro­mus­cu­lar con­di­tions.

The Hos­pi­tal Re­search Foun­da­tion has pro­vided the fund­ing to West Beach-based NDIS provider I Can Jump Pud­dles so it can sup­port fam­i­lies of chil­dren who are newly di­ag­nosed with mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy and sim­i­lar con­di­tions.

Last year the char­ity took over client ser­vices from MDSA af­ter that or­gan­i­sa­tion went into ad­min­is­tra­tion af­ter suf­fer­ing huge losses fol­low­ing a failed home lot­tery.

I Can Jump Pud­dles will use part of the $200,000 to sup­port those re­cently di­ag­nosed with neu­ro­mus­cu­lar con­di­tions.

THRF chief ex­ec­u­tive Paul Flynn said he “felt it was our duty to fight for the com­mu­nity”.
