As an established local business, we feel that it is important to support our local business community as well as local charities.
We support KidsOut who are our Charity of Choice. The charity, founded in 1999 focuses on delivering a range of services to disadvantaged children.
These services include “A Big Day Out”, which takes place in June every year whereby over 25,000 disadvantaged children are taken for a day out. This creates a lasting memory for those children who have never had the opportunity to for example, visit the seaside, or a theme park. The charity also provides a Toy Box service whereby
children are provided with a box of brand new toys, when they find themselves relocated. This helps bring stability and fun into the children’s lives, when they need it the most.
KidsOut also organize “Fun Days” in which children are taken out to local attractions and they also fund “Phyzzpod”. This is a cost effective sensory environment which helps stimulate imaginations, develop speech and expressive skills in those children that through their experiences, have not been able to develop adequately.
The charity also assist in a World Stories programme, which is an on-line resource of over 100 stories written in both the child’s original language and in English. This helps improve their literacy skills and help learn about other cultures.
Disadvantaged children are those who are the most vulnerable, those who have been abused, those who find themselves living in refuges, those who have suffered a serious injury and those who are disabled. KidsOut aims to give those children positive experiences to support them becoming future members of our society and workforce.
