Notts architects boost funds for state-of-the-art rehab centre

A brand new rehabilitation centre designed for those who have suffered life-changing sporting injuries, received a £2,750 boost thanks to CPMG Architects.

The firm, which has offices in Nottingham and London, pledged its support to the Matt Hampson Foundation by providing interior design services for the Get Busy Living Centre and has donated the proceeds from a charity walk.

Nick Gregory, director at CPMG, said: “Matt’s story is hugely inspiring and the work the foundation does in helping people with serious injuries and disabilities is just incredible.

“As well as lending our support to the Get Busy Living Centre, we also committed to fundraising for the Matt Hampson Foundation.  We are delighted to have raised nearly £3,000 having taken on the Dark Peak Challenge – a 27-mile walk through Derbyshire.”

The Get Busy Living Centre, near Melton Mowbray, has seen the transformation of a former aircraft hangar into a state-of-the-art facility for those who have suffered life-changing injury through sport.

Matt Hampson, a former England Under-21 and Leicester Tigers prop and the driving force behind this new facility, suffered a life-changing accident during a training session in 2005 and set up the foundation to offer support and assistance to those who have had similar life-changing events.

He said: “This project has been many years in the making and we are very proud to have support from businesses like CPMG which has allowed us to make our dream a reality – we simply wouldn’t be here without our generous partners.”

CPMG Architects has also raised money for Nottingham homeless charity Framework through the Dragon’s Back Challenge across the Peak District earlier this year.
