A Weston woman is aiming to raise thousands of pounds to open a rebound therapy centre.
Therapist Lisa Mensah wants to set up a centre for the technique, which uses trampolines as a way of developing motor skills, balance and co-ordination.
The centre would also include counselling and a sensory room.
Lisa said: “To my knowledge there is not a centre like this locally to us or in the South West.
“This centre will help both adults and children with disabilities, both physical and learning.”
An open day was held at The Campus to give people a taste of rebound therapy.
An online campaign has been set up to raise £5,000 which will be used to buy equipment and potentially a trampoline hoist to allow people with more complex needs to use the service.
