Description

Hi guys

Thanks for visiting this eventbrite event. A short while ago on social media there was talk of how we should organise a Foot Health and related medics and allied health professionals social and then it was suggested that we use it to raise funds for Forgotten Feet. So I've arranged the hire of the Malin Bridge Inn function room for a cold buffet and a disco. Children are welcome in the function room. The pub has a large cocktail and gin menus.

Cost

I would be grateful if you would consider donate a minimum of £15 per adult and £5 per child via the Forgotten Feet Crowd Funding link here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/forgottenfeet but do not let cost put you off, we would much rather your company if cost is an issue.

How to get there

There are excellent bus and tram links, with the tram stop within 2 minutes walk. I have attached links for an app on how to get there via public transport.

Parking

There is some on-road parking locally surrounding the Malin Bridge Inn, but the Malin Bridge Park and Ride car park is £1 and closes at 00.30 on Saturdays. I have included the link below

Why are we fundraising

I have attached the website and copied the home page of Forgotten Feet so you know what it's about.

Forgotten Feet

The aim of this project is to put in place a free regular chiropody/podiatry service for those most in need and least likely to have the means to access it, such as the homeless and socially isolated, at locations where they can easily access the service.

Forgotten Feet, originally set up in 2013 by podiatrist Deborah Monk in Worcester, is a rapidly expanding nationwide project extending across England and into Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. There are now many towns covered by the free Forgotten Feet foot care service run by volunteer podiatrists, assisted often by foot health practitioners.

Our vision is to set up clinics across the UK in areas identified as being in need in order to develop a national Forgotten Feet network to help the homeless and socially deprived. To this end, the project has been publicised in ‘Podiatry Now’ and elsewhere to encourage other podiatrists & foot health practitioners to step forward and help set up clinics & work together as part of a countrywide team.

How This Works
Setting up clinics in homeless centres means that users of the service are more likely to take up treatment, rather than if they had to travel elsewhere.

Clinics are run at regular intervals, approximately every 6 weeks, or whenever a podiatrist can fit them in with the rest of their workload.

All that is required to make this possible is the use of a small room with a couple of chairs and a table.

Primarily, Forgotten Feet aims to serve the homeless population and alleviate painful foot conditions.

However, we have an open door policy whereby anyone entitled to use the centre may have free treatment; this includes socially isolated and vulnerable people. All treatment is of course confidential and appropriate records are kept.
