We are a team of friends wanting to get very muddy and wet, helping each other over obstacles in the Total Warrior Challenge on 2nd August 2014 at Penrith in Cumbria. We are aiming to raise money for the Give us a Break Charity (a short break centre for disabled children and families)- local to our home towns in Copeland, Cumbria. The charity have already raised a substantial amount of money so far (250K) through last years Cash for Kids CFM Appeal, but we are wanting to keep collecting for them to increase awareness and also for the longevity of the plans that the Charity have. Step by Step lets make this dream a reality for all families within our local area. To watch the video about the scheme please click this link http://giveusabreak2010.org/
By providing a 24/7 Short Break Centre we would be giving children and their parents a much needed service in the West Cumbria area. We need to give parents/carers a place that supplies a fun and caring environment, a chance to sit down for 10 minutes while their children play happily, to socialise with other parents from a similar background and have a break that parents /carers desperately need. This will promote a community based environment and approach to the needs and lives of these individuals who have currently not been given the opportunity of a more fulfilling lifestyle.
Children with a variety of disabilities such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome, Fragile X, etc, will be able to come to the centre and have fun in a secure, fun environment where they can learn and have some independence. This independence is as basic as learning to wash their face, clean their teeth, dress themselves etc. all things that we take for granted in our normal everyday lives.
Thank you to everyone that supports us and to all donations that go straight to these needy local families.
