Joanne Barnes, Charity Manager says
“We had 3 Activity clubs running over half term which were attended by 53 children and young people with disabilities. Thanks to the grant received from The Kentown Wizard Foundation we were able to hire a bouncy castle for the week in all 3 areas and we had a visit from Hands on Animals. This provided huge enjoyment for the children and enabled them to burn off lots of built-up energy. We also had Halloween themed activities throughout the week with pumpkin carving, face painting and sensory activities.
The children loved seeing their friends away from school and they had lots of fun with them. The sessions definitely benefited their mental health and well-being and reduced their social isolation. Not only this but the parents and carers also benefitted, as they were provided with a break from their caring role.”
The support being offered by the Play Inclusion Project throughout these isolating times is incredible and we are extremely happy to hear that everyone involved had such a wonderful half term!
