Our Mission

We’re building The Chamwell Centre, an exciting and ground-breaking new facility in the grounds of The Milestone Special School in Gloucester that will support the needs of disabled children and adults across the county. 

Watch our inspirational story of Max, a 17-year-old boy with cerebral palsy overcoming his disability through hydrotherapy and RaceRunning – and raising money to build the new Chamwell Centre.

Thank you

Thank you to #StJamesPlaceCharitableFoundation for sponsoring this wonderful film created by Singularity Film Production featuring:

  • Max – former pupil of The Milestone School, whose life has been transformed by RaceRunning and Hydrotherapy
  • Charlie – Gloucestershire Sports Personality of the Year & RaceRunning World Champion
  • Milestone School pupils using current hydrotherapy pool –
  • which The Chamwell Centre will replace
  • Ashleigh – Inspirational former pupil of The Milestone School who has autism and is blind, who improvised and played the soundtrack music for the film LIVE.

We hope this film inspires you to support The Chamwell Centre Charity’s aspiration to bring this centre of excellence to all disabled children & adults across Gloucestershire.
