The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability this week was delighted to host a visit from members of Putney's Rotary Club. The Rotary Club of Putney has recently donated £1000 to the RHN, to fund a new electronic environmental control for use by one of our residents with complex neuro-disabilities and as part of today's visit they were able to see for themselves just how their gift has been put to use. 

Electronic environmental control systems are vital for patients and residents at the RHN as they enable an individual to exercise control over their own environment, for example, to turn on a lamp or change the TV station, without having to use any sort of manual switch.  It allows the resident to exercise choice directly – without having to involve anyone else.

This is not the first time that Putney's Rotary Club has donated to the RHN. 
Past President Tony Chase said, “"The Rotary Club of Putney has had a long association with the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability over the years and has donated various items including gardening and mobility equipment and technology. It's great to support such a worthwhile local cause".

Aysen Yousouf, Trusts and Foundations Manager at the RHN, said, “We're delighted to have such a good relationship with the Rotary Club, and being ableto welcome local businesses and community groups on visits like this, enables them to see first hand the amazing difference their support has on people's lives.”
