The School Council have chosen this year's charity as Children's World International. The charity (based in Glastonbury) provides performance, games and fun to children, families, and communities where needed around the world!
Since 1999 they have undertaken projects across the world, working with children and families affected by conflict, disease and natural or man made disasters.
“Fun and creative play may sound frivolous, but we believe that they are powerful tools in recreating confidence and in inspiring hope for the future…”
Arabella Churchill, founder
Our chosen charity for 2018/2019
bibic is a small national charity making a big difference!
Since 1972, they have evolved into a national charity supporting not only those with brain injuries but a wide range of disabilities, developmental conditions and learning difficulties; bibic passionately believes that every child deserves to reach their potential and live a fulfilling life.
They deliver assessments and bespoke developmental therapy to children and young people age 6 months to 25 years old and training to parents and professionals. They see children and young people with or without a diagnosis and support a wide range of neurological and genetic conditions. Including conditions such as Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ADHD, Cerebral palsy, Global Developmental Delay (GDD), Down’s syndrome, Sensory processing difficulties and many more.
On Monday 10th December the School Council invited the local bibic Charity, that we are supporting this year, to run an assembly for both Key stages. Robbie and Jess told us all about the Charity and how they help local children with brain injuries, at the BIBIC Centre and in their homes and schools.
Hope for Kids cares for children-in-crisis: orphans, street children, those who have been abandoned or abused, and those who are victims of war, disease and extreme poverty.
They accomplish this through several types of programme, including:
residential homes, schools, care centres, medical care, family together and appeals.
