    Encon Leeds help fund Ryegate Hydrotherapy Pool for the Sheffield Children's Hospital

    6th June 2013

    Encon Leeds are proud to say we played a part in the renovation of Ryegate Hydrotherapy Pool for the Sheffield Children's Hospital.

    A new hydrotherapy pool, which will be used to treat hundreds of young patients has been officially opened. £200,000 has been spent replacing the 50 year old pool at Ryegate Children's Centre in Broomhill.

    The new sunken facility is much easier for patients to access, features modern lighting including some lights beneath the water and has an improved hoist for getting young people in and out of the water. It was provided thanks to donations from Henry Boot Construction and Dransfield Properties Ltd.

    The new facility, opened by British Paralympic gold medallist Oliver Hynd, offers treatment to children with a range of disabilities, helping them to develop their skills, strengthen their bodies, or provide sensory treatment to improve their quality of life. It will also be used by children following serious accidents and by children with brain or spinal injuries.

    Paralympic swimming champion Oliver Hynd from Kirkby in Ashfield cut the ribbon to declare the new pool at Ryegate Children's Centre open. His muscular dystrophy was treated at Sheffield Children's Hospital when he was younger and he says he can see the difference it will make to young patients.

    Encon Leeds' charitable contributions, along with numerous other companies, ensured that Henry Boot Construction and Dransfield Properties Ltd were able to complete this project and improve the quality of life for children with a range of disabilities.
