Helping Hands Christmas Appeal

Children with disabilities can be isolated from their communities and high transport costs can limit their experiences still further. This Christmas we want to raise £30,000 for our own minibus and open up a whole new world to our children.

Children with disabilities can be excluded and isolated from their communities and the high cost of specialist transport can limit experiences still further.

The result is that children dont get to engage with their communities or develop independence thats so vital for their future.

We need your support this Christmas to reach our goal of £30,000 to purchase our own specialist minibus.

Sammy's main love is swimming. Her legs just seem to come alive in the water! Her physical disabilities dont disappear, but they are temporarily lifted and she just loves to go. Sadly, its just become too difficult for me to take her swimming now without a huge amount of support - physically getting her in and out of the pool is just too much. If Pace are able to buy their own minibus and add regular swimming lessons to school life, Sammy would be ecstatic!

11-year-old Sammy joined Pace in 2011 and attends full time. Sammy has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, and, like many of the children in our care, loves swimming. By sending in a gift today and helping us to buy a minibus, you can make sure young people like Sammy , grow in confidence and are able to do the things they love. And the happier children like Sammy are, the happier their parents are too.

The minibus will be so much more than just a mode of transport. It's an independence-giving, confidence-building, curriculum-enhancing and barrier-smashing super bus!
