Action For Kids makes a dramatic and visible difference to the lives of children and young people with disabilities all around the UK. Wherever you are based, there are disabled children in your area who need our support, and your donations can help to change their lives for the better.
Action For Kids would like to thank the following organisations for their generosity and support:
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Sainsbury's Muswell Hill for all their help and support. They hold regular bag-packing and charity collection days for Action For Kids. The staff volunteer at the charity and are more than happy to welcome our young people into the store for visits and fundraising projects. They also donate Sainsbury's Active Kids vouchers. We recently used these to purchase a Boccia kit - providing access to a great sport that everyone can play.
Sainsbury's Muswell Hill also supported us this year by supplying tickets for our young people to attned the Paralympics. We had some fantastic days out watching whhelchair tennis and basketball, football and soaking up all the atmosphere in hte Olympic Park.
Action For Kids was delighted to have the suipport of Doyle Clayton as one of our major sponsors at the 2013 Charity Beach Volleyball Championships at Canary Wharf. Their players received training with Team GB's Phil Smith.(pictured below) and entered a team into the main tournament. On the day they invited friends, clients and teams to join them in their branded marquee on site. Thanks Doyle Clayton - we couldnt have done it without you! See you for the next round - July 18th 2014
Thornton's Budgens of Crouch End
Action For Kids works closely with Thornton's Budgens of Crouch End in a number of ways. The "Pennies for Plastic Appeal", donates 1p for every bag not used at the store to Action For Kids and the store provides work experience placements and administration tasks for the disabled young people on our work related learning programme.
Andrew Thornton, Manager and Owner of Thornton's Budgens of Crouch End says "We are thrilled to be involved with Action For Kids as they play such a vital role in the community here in Crouch End. It’s also great that we can use the team to help with our local direct mail campaign, rather than giving the work to a commercial organisation."
Burson Marsteller is proudly supporting Action For Kids during their charity week, through a range of activities, volunteering and lending their skills to the charity. All the money raised will hopefully go to buy a trike for one of the children in great need of Action For Kids' support.
GamesAid is the UK video games industry based charity. They distribute funds to a diverse range of charities as a means of giving something back on behalf of the industry. Action For Kids is grateful for the funding and support they have provided since 2009. The efforts of their members have made a real difference to the independence and wellbeing of children all over the country.
We were recently delighted to find out that we had been selected as one of GamesAid's charity partners once again and we were presented with an enormous £36,000 donation by Stuart Dinsey, chair of the GamesAid trustees. We cant thank everyone there enough for choosing to continue to support us - this sort of funding will have an amazing impact on the future independence and wellbeing of disabled children and young people all around the country.
