Leading scooter brand, Micro Scooters, has teamed up with children’s charity, Spread a Smile, to spread smiles to seriously ill and hospitalised children. The new partnership will support the brand’s philosophy that ‘small changes can add up to make a big difference’ and will include product donation, support with fundraising events and activities and raising the charity’s awareness to new family audiences.
Young patients on the oncology ward at UCLH were the first to benefit at this week’s partnership launch. Laura Walter, Director of Services at Spread a Smile, said, “Radiotherapy can be very frightening for young patients and whatever we can do to alleviate their anxieties and make children more accepting of treatment is essential to their wellbeing. A number of the children were very nervous before their treatment but to see them scoot into the radiotherapy room and with the promise of further scooting post treatment it made today a more positive experience and proves ‘it’s the micro things that matter most’.”
Ben Gibson, Managing Director at Micro Scooters UK, said “We have been donating scooters to children in hospitals since our business started nearly 15 years ago. Working with the incredible team at Spread a Smile will now allow us to donate more scooters further and wider across the country. We are in awe of the team at Spread a Smile and are delighted we can help them achieve their ambitions in any way we can”.
