Our latest video, highlighting an amazing appeal organised by the Yorkshire region of Variety the Children’s Charity, has gone live.
You can see the video below and also find out more details on Variety’s Just Giving page:
Springwater is a special school based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Pupils range from 2-19 years old and have a wide range of complex life limiting and life threatening conditions. Variety visited the school in January last year and met with the Head Teacher, Sarah Edwards. From meeting both Sarah and her fantastic staff, it was clear how passionate they are about the school and its pupils and the level of care that is given to each and every child. The school is a small building, based on a restrictive site so outside space is very limited and it was immediately apparent the effect that the school’s limited funds and space has on the environment and equipment they are able to offer their pupils.
The aim of the Variety Big Build programme is to address the urgent needs of the school. We have recently completed Phase 1, the opening of a state of the art Sensory room, and Phase 2, the provision of a purpose built sunken trampoline to support rebound therapy is well under way. Variety is currently raising money for playground equipment which will help complete Phase 3 of the project, an all inclusive purpose built playground area.
We are proud to be associated with this magnificent project.
