'More independent, dignified and fulfilled lives' in Leicestershire

Another award for STEPS

Not for the first time the contribution of the little STEPS centre to its local community has been publicly acknowledged with an award.

This morning's Loughborough Echo reports a ceremony held last night at the Quorn Country Hotel, to announce the 2008 winners of the annual 3M Health Care/Loughborough Echo Community Awards. Four local charities received £3,000 each from Loughborough MP Andy Reed, along with good and extensive local publicity for their work in teaching children to 'to lead more independent, dignified and fulfilled lives'.

With reference to the recent item on Conductive Education and Down's syndrome, it was interesting to note that STEPS is reported as serving 'children with cerebral palsy, Downs syndrome and similar conditions'.

'...lead more independent, dignified and fulfilled lives'. Nice phrase. I would say that, though; it's one of mine. Good to see that it still has legs.
