We’ve been devastated to watch the ongoing coverage of the widespread bushfires. Have you been wondering how you can help?
We will be donating $10 for every new patient we see during the month of January directly to one of the bushfire appeals.
We are starting with the NSW Rural Fire Brigade! https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/volunteer/support-your-local-brigade
So if you have a friend or family member who’s been putting off a physio appointment, now is a great time to do it!
If you would like to personally help with the cause, see the many ways to help or donate here :
