Ripples in a pond with the text Physios Giving Well

Physios Giving Well

Each of the physios in our group give £30 to givewell.com each month. The figure of £30 was chosen based on the idea that if there were 10 of us in the group (we’re almost double now), our donations would add up to saving the life of a child per year.

Read more about us and the idea here in the blogpost: Why we’re giving well. You can also see some interviews with our group at Youtube or listen to our podcast at https://anchor.fm/physiosonline
