THE POLICE REHABILITATION CENTRE, FLINT HOUSE CELEBRATES £2,500 GIFT FROM THE PATRON’S FUND
Flint House is celebrating after receiving a £2,500 gift from The Patron’s Fund, the charitable fund set up to acknowledge the work of the charitable organisations for which Her Majesty, The Queen acts as a Patron, on the occasion of her 90th birthday.
Around £750,000 is available to distribute between nearly 300 charities and other organisations in the UK and the Commonwealth. The Fund received generous donations from a range of supporters; including individual donors, businesses, schools, community groups and the proceeds from The Patron’s Lunch, the event on the Mall last June.
“Our mission at The Police Rehabilitation Centre is to provide the highest standards of individually planned, intensive, rehabilitation services for sick and injured, serving and retired police officers”
PR and Communications Manager, Kevin Bishop went on to say …“As a charity over 125 years old and dedicated to serving and retired UK Police Officers, we are proud of having Royal Patronage that dates back to the first Convalescent Home and Orphanage at Clarendon Villas, Hove, in 1890.
Flint House is committed to providing the best people, facilities and equipment for our patients both past, present and future. This gift has enabled the Centre to purchase two state of the art massage chairs that can assist in pain relief, relaxation and overall restorative health and wellbeing treatment across a wide spectrum of physical and mental conditions. We thank the Trustees of The Patrons Fund for their charitable gift”
Sir Stuart Etherington, Chair of The Board of Trustees for The Patron’s Fund, said:
‘The Patron’s Fund is very pleased to be able to support Flint House with its valuable work. The Police Rehabilitation Centre, Flint House is among hundreds of organisations for which The Queen acts as a Patron, which between them make a difference to causes and communities in the UK and throughout the Commonwealth.’

Con Bardi of the Met who on Sunday ran in the Athens Marathon:
I would like to thank all who supported me in helping raise funds for The Police Rehabilitation Centre. 100% of all the donations have gone to the Flint House.
It was a very hot day, with temperatures reaching 25c, which made the hilly course interesting at times.
My personal reward was following the historic route taken by Pheidippides in 490 bc, and finishing in the The Ancient Olympic stadium on the 120th anniversary since the first modern marathon.
I guess it is good news for the Met to be represented at such an International event abroad by one of their Inspectors.
Con we salute you. Thank You on behalf of the Centre.

Today Flint House said cheerio to Sally (Capt.) Bergmann who at an age no gentleman would ask has taken to the life of a distinguished retiree.
For more than 13 years Sally has often been both the voice on the phone for patients and the first face seen when they enter Flint House. Always a smiler, organiser, extraordinaire, guardian of our grammar standards, typos hunter and the enthusiastic proponent of the correct usage of the omniscient apostrophe....!!
Well certainly for anything I have written in the last ten years.
Sally, enjoy a life of travel and leisure, and you will need to visit us to check on writing standards. Hugs and missing you already. It's been an honour and a privilege to have known you.

MacMillan Cancer Coffee morning
On Friday September 30th Hannah from our physio dept organised us all into eating cakes for the MacMillan Cancer Coffee Morning appeal.
It wasn't too dificult to persuade the "eaters" (no surprise there) to step forward and as a result the 'tasty' sum of £435 was raised. A few enthusiasts were later seen giving the weighing scales a quick swerve for a day.
Thanks to Hannah and everyone who baked and ate.
