Weʼre raising £1,000 to take a group of young adults with special needs for a day trip to the seaside
- Derby, UK
- 17 days to go
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.
We are a charity in Derby called Umbrella. We support children and young adults with additional needs. We support them either at Umbrella House or out in the community. These can be either one-to-one support or a group support. Sometimes it's two-to-one at Umbrella House. From 9am to 9pm, 7 days a week, our aim is to help them achieve targets, gain independence and to give parents time with their other siblings. Often it's difficult for parents to take their young adults to the seaside just for fun.
As a charity we don't have enough funding to take this group out to the seaside. We would need some help to achieve funding the trip we want to do. For a start we need to hire a special bus with a wheelchair access and this will take majority amount of the money I have targeted.
