The Limbcare team were very proud to support Frimley Park Hospital User Group on Tuesday 14th March, bringing amputees, their families, friends and carers together. It was wonderful meeting other amputees and sharing their stories and issues - this is a monthly meeting and hopefully more will attend. Well done Tracey Craig for organising this and the refreshments.
Following recent press and TV coverage, we are very fortunate to have a container based in Yateley and two garages in Sandhurst and Blackwater to assist in our recycling service. Thank you to Michael Gray, Tony Watson and Suzanne Wells for their kind donation.
With TV coverage and the local press our charity has had an offer from Wilky group who own Westmead House in Farnborough and they have kindly donated an office suite which is a fabulous gift, as our charity would have been made homeless on March 24th. We move into our new offices on Tuesday 21st March - Limbcare, Suite 3C, Westmead House, Westmead, Farnborough, Hampshire, GU14 7LP. Our number is still 0800 052 1174.
Well, all problems come in threes but now we can say that, again with the help of the local press, Eden Motor Group in Camberley have kindly donated a Vauxhall Vivaro van for our charity to continue the great work we do in collecting unwanted mobility aids and assisting amputees and limb impaired in the UK. We hope to get delivery of this van within a couple of weeks. Thank you to Mark Clifton, General Manager, Eden Motor Group.
NHS England is now able to offer microprocessor controlled prosthetic knees under newly approved funding. John Morris, an amputee of over 50 years and a patient at the Bristol Centre for Enablement, is one of the first to benefit from this new policy.Read more

Joanne Adams and Ray Edwards had a wonderful evening at the Gang Show last night, held at the Wilde Theatre Bracknell. Great entertainment and we were both looked after so well by the organising team.
Ray and Jo were invited up onto the stage to receive a cheque for the magnificent total of £700. Ray said a few words of thanks and spoke about the good work Limbcare does.
Thank you very much for all your kind donations.
Ray knows the frustration caused by not being able to feed yourself. We then worked with an engineer to come up with a prototype.
This was the first time he was able to feed himself. What a very emotional day for him, Ray and the rehab team.
On a beautiful sunny day Limbcare received The Queens Award for voluntary Services from Her Royal Highness Princess Royal. Princess Anne.Read more
