Weʼre raising £10,000 to Aura Cumbria wants to create a sensory gym and hub for the whole community. It will be the largest sensory gym in the north of England.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Aura Cumbria CIC (not for profit) is an established sensory environment in Kendal, Cumbria. We are expanding and would like to create a sensory gym and community sensory hub for everyone to use.
Sensory Gyms are a new idea which has become wide spread practice in the USA. However you will struggle to find such facilities in the UK.
What are they you ask?
The first things you'll notice are the bright colors splashed across the walls. Next, your eyes will move to all the different friendly stations. From the covered swings to the ball pits to the climbing walls, it's a child's paradise!
Sensory gyms are fun for all kids and adults but they're especially valuable for children with special needs because they provide a wonderful opportunity for them to learn to process information in a fun, non-threatening way. Not only will these gyms help improve balance and body awareness, but they'll also improve fine motor skills, coordination, cause-and-effect reasoning and cognitive-behavioral social skills in a safe environment.
While sensory gyms certainly provide the health and fitness benefits of regular gyms, their benefits extend much further.
We are also going to provide new inivative ideas for all ages and abilities. Such as a horizontal lego wall, UV messy play, and interactive learning and development areas.
We will have the ability to hold life skill courses, training courses and possible rehabilitation room with standing hoist.
We hope that you feel that this would be a benefical asset to the local area and encourage people to come to Kendal from far and wide.
We appreciate you have taken the time to look at our ideas and thank you for supporting Aura
