We have previously worked on a fundraising appeal with Space Charity to provide a specially adapted holiday home in the resort of Challaborough Bay in Devon. We have also worked in Partnership with Birmingham Children's Hospital.
"The wheels on the bus go round and round round and round..."
Regardless of age ability or nationality everyone has grown up knowing the wheels on the bus nursery rhyme we have decided to make it a reality for terminally ill and severely disabled children and familys by launching our appeal.
As part of our great family escape appeal are also providing the transport to the great escape destination as it will enable the whole family to travel comfortably together. The vehicle will also be used to provide adapted transport to wheelchair bound children and teenagers as it will enable them to attend community events and centres without having to be taken from their adapted wheelchairs and transported in an unadapted vehicle. This will reduce the stress of simple journeys as there will not be a need for the disruption of being removed from the wheelchair. The wheelchair can simply be wheeled up a ramp into a specially adapted vehicle and strapped safely inside. We are also making additions of sensory lighting to the ceiling of the vehicle as this will create a theraputic effect which will make journeys more enjoyable.
The cost of our wheels on the bus appeal is £31,000 this is to provide a fully operational adapted vehicle.
