Open Day




Fundraising event

On Friday, 22nd March 2024, Aiming Higher, a charity dedicated to supporting disabled children and their families in the Blackpool and Fylde area, will be opening our doors to businesses and services in the community. From 12 noon to 2.30pm, you are invited to come and learn more about the incredible work that Aiming Higher does and how you can get involved.

Aiming Higher is a small charity based in Blackpool, which is known to be one of the most deprived areas in the UK. We provide vital support to disabled children and young people, as well as their families, through a range of projects and services. These include a family support service, early years sessions, Family events, counselling, workshops, and a youth group for young people on the autistic spectrum.

The open day will be an opportunity for local businesses and services to find out how they can support and collaborate with Aiming Higher. Whether it’s through donations, partnerships, or volunteering, there are many ways to get involved and make a positive impact on the lives of disabled children and their families in the community. Or simply come along to find out more about what we do.

Businesses and services are encouraged to come and meet the team at Aiming Higher’s centre on Church Street in Blackpool, to learn about our projects and services, and discover how we play a part in making a difference. By supporting Aiming Higher, businesses and services can also build their reputation as socially responsible organisations that are committed to making a difference in the community.

In addition to learning about the work we do, the open day will also be an opportunity for networking and building relationships with other businesses and services in the area. It’s a chance to connect with like-minded individuals and organisations who are passionate about helping people.

So mark your calendars for Friday, 22nd March 2024, and make sure to pop in anytime from 12 noon to 2.30pm to visit Aiming Higher and see how you can get involved. Your support can make a real difference in the lives of disabled children and their families in the Blackpool and Fylde area. We hope to see you there!

Light refreshments to be served.
