Who We Are Helping

Through the generosity of our supporters, we have been able to make grants to local children totalling £48,441 since our charity registration in October 2013. 

Of that sum £16,896.18 has been donated as grants to the following registered children’s charities operating within Herts, Beds and Bucks:

Playskill - £2000 to help towards buying a van to transport play equipment between their two special needs playgroups in Hemel Hempstead and Watford 
Happy Days  - £2644.75 to fund a 4 day residential trip to PGL in France for 27 children with disabilities, a day trip for 43 children with disabilities to Thomley Activity Centre, and a theatre trip for 16 children with additional needs
Designability  -  £4,250 to fund a ‘Wizzybug’, which is a fun and innovative first powered wheelchair for children under 5.  The Wizzybug will be made available for loan by Designability to children in Herts, Beds and Bucks
Harry’s Rainbow - £2501.43 to fund their invaluable work with bereaved children in Buckinghamshire. Our grant will mean they can continue to run their monthly bereavement support group for children ‘The Rainbow Group’, for a further year. Our grant has also helped to fund a recent trip for The Rainbow Group to ‘Bounce’ in Milton Keynes 
The PACE Centre - £2,500 to help fund their PIPS early intervention programme and £3,000 to fund therapy costs for their Young Adventurers Group.
