Over the following period, we saw a hugely increased uptake of our foot care service, with both our orginal clinics – Maggs Day Centre in Worcester and the Stratford Link Project run at Waterside, Stratford-on-Avon – showing a great rise in the number of people treated as the word spread.

One lady, ‘Mary’, came in barely able to walk, but strode out in comfort having had her feet dealt with and new insoles in her poorly fitting shoes!

We were amazingly fortunate to have a good number of insoles and footcare products donated by Cuxson Gerrard, arranged by Michael Ratcliffe, whose continued support was much appreciated, along with Sam Mills at C & P Medical, who donated podiatry supplies.

More podiatrists have since joined us to grow the project, and other suitably qualified foot health practitioners are a great asset too.
