Partnering with The Dorset Children's Foundation

2019 – A year for change

 

Some of our customers may know Robert as the man with the friendly smile, always ready to help and if you ask nicely he’ll even make you a cup of tea. However you may not know that at age 3, he was diagnosed with ADHD. Sadly this is not uncommon.

 

Did you know that 1 in every 20 children in the UK have a disability? That’s 800,000 children under the age of 16 that struggle physically, mentally and/or emotionally with everyday life. Robert was one of the lucky ones, he had a strong and supportive family standing behind him and he has achieved things he never thought he would. And now it’s time he gave another child the opportunities that he had. That’s why, for 2019 we have chosen to support The Dorset Children’s Foundation.

 

Dorset Children’s Foundation was set up in 2013 to help improve the quality of life for children with disabilities. This includes not only necessary medical expenses and mobility equipment but also therapies and facilities to ensure the children are provided with the greatest quality of life. Since first founded, along with the local community, Dorset Children’s Foundation has donated over £500,000 to local disabled children and we hope to aid them in their fantastic work.

 

             Music therapy is one of the many services available and it offers children a way to improve their confidence, independence and communicative skills. We believe that music can bring people together and provides a common interest, therefore we have made several promises to The Dorset Children’s Foundation:

 

  •   An initial donation to fund 3 music therapy sessions
  •      A donation of £5 for every music instrument sale
  •   Fundraising events throughout the year
  •  'Pick & Play Days’ – interactive learning sessions
  •         Sponsorship & promotion of charity events.

 

One final aim we have is to help set up a children’s charity wind band. This is something that can be used as a therapy aid but also allows the children to help fundraise in several different ways, including performances and recording sales.

 

       As the saying goes children are the future and all children deserve the same opportunities to see that future, despite whatever hardships they may face. We have the tools to do something good and if passed on, these children could use those tools to do something great.
