£500 allows Aiming Higher to provide an exclusive cinema viewing for up to 100 children. This allows children to experience the cinema with the lighting up higher, sound lower and with subtitles for children with hearing impairments.
£1500 funds a day trip for 50 children with their parents/siblings to go to Eureka Science museum in Halifax. This kind of trip allows a family to experience a day out away from their local area with the comfort of a fully adapted disabled coach. Disabled children benefit from experiencing the hands on exhibitions and sensory equipment as well as providing a memorable day out for the whole family.
£2000 allows Aiming Higher to hire Sandcastle Waterpark for 3 hours to provide a family swimming event for up to 300 children and their families. Using the Waterpark privately allows Aiming Higher to provide an adapted environment to assist families with disabled children to enjoy the experience in adapted surroundings and with the benefits of swimming, splash and water therapy.
These are just a few examples of the events and the costs involved in providing these invaluable days out for disabled children and their families. If you’d like to help or donate towards one of our events, please contact the Aiming Higher office on 01253 206447/8.
