Special Orthotic Services supports children’s charity with mobility equipment


Drive DeVilbiss subsidiary Special Orthotic Services (SOS) has partnered with a children’s charity to help it raise money.

The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) has launched an online prize draw in conjunction with SOS, a supplier of products covering special seating and mobility needs.

Tickets cost £3 and one person will win a bespoke P-Pod seating system, which depending on specifications will be worth around £2,000.

The competition will run until 23 October 2019 and all proceeds will go towards supporting the hundreds of children of fashion and textiles families that FTCT supports each year.

The partnership began after the FTCT met SOS at the Kidz to Adults Middle exhibition for parents of disabled children in Coventry in March 2019.

Mobility equipment is just one of the items that FTCT grants fund.

Grants for disabled children can also fund sensory equipment, courses of therapy and anything else that is deemed essential to the wellbeing of the child.

To be eligible for an FTCT grant, one of the child’s parents or primary carers must have done paid work within fashion and textiles for one year within the past nine years.

SOS inside sales manager Sarah Kent said: “We believe the work which FTCT does is invaluable in our sector.

“FTCT’s small, dedicated team work tirelessly to ensure that as many applicants find the help that they deserve. We felt it was only right to help them in their mission to support as many children as possible.”
