Coppards Removals supports the Freddie Farmer Foundation

Feb 24, 2015
Bromley-based Coppards Removals has been working with the Freddie Farmer Foundation to help raise funds for a specialised physiotherapy centre in South-East England for children with cerebral palsy and severe mobility issues.

The charity is run by Danny Catchesides who was nominated in the 2014 Pride of Britain Awards to represent London in the Fundraiser of the Year category.  Danny was inspired by his grandson Freddie - who suffers from cerebral palsy - and has raised £350,000 for the new centre.  Richard Russ, Coppards Removals’ Managing Director, met Freddie and was eager to support the cause.


Coppards has supported the Foundation by attending fundraisers whenever possible and making donations.  It’s also distributed fundraising materials to raise awareness of the charity and collects unwanted, saleable furniture and auctions it via a local auction house on behalf of the foundation.  Through the generous donations of its clients, Coppards has raised over £8,500 over the last 15 months.


Paul Russ, Director Business Services, said: “We at Coppards Removals and Storage support the Freddie Farmer Foundation because it’s a locally-based charity that provides tangible and significant results for children with cerebral palsy and serious mobility issues. Our directors were particularly impressed by Freddie, his zest for life is contagious, and his family’s hard work and dedication to getting Freddie on his feet.”

The new centre is due to open in early 2015.  For more information or to make a donation visit:
