The past year has been a very difficult time for everyone. Families with disabled children have found it particularly hard, with many left completely isolated and without their support networks.
Allsorts, a charity based in Stroud, runs a range of trips and activities that are accessible to families who have children with additional needs. It provides support staff and ensures that everyone can make the most of their day out. With Allsorts, families can travel together and go to places which could have been very challenging. There is also the opportunity to make friends with others in similar situations. Spending quality time together is something that is really valued by any family, especially those with disabled children.
Allsorts has launched a summer appeal, to raise £5,000 and reach out to the local community, highlighting the brilliant work it does and encourage financial support.
£300 could pay for 17 families to have a picnic and fun games day, supported by the Allsorts team
£210 could pay for 30 people to enjoy an exclusive pool party!
£340 could pay for 27 families to have exclusive use of Cattle Country, supported by the Allsorts team
£40 could pay for 1 of our support workers to attend a family trip.
£15 could pay for a first aid kit for an event.
Pip Kortrigh has championed Allsorts, who provide vital support for her son, she said: “Charlie’s access to the community is very limited due to his physical disabilities. School holidays can dauntingly stretch out before us and seem never-ending.
“Allsorts understands how hard this is for families like ours. They provide a fantastic choice of day trips, allowing Charlie to make wonderful memories and friends with other children his age. As parents it’s lovely to know that the trips are so well thought out and inclusive, taking some of the usual stress away from days out. After a very tough 18 months during the pandemic, we are looking forward to making more priceless memories this summer with Allsorts.”
