'Special Needs'

1

is a descriptive term encompassing a wide range of human frailties such as physical disabilities and learning difficulties affecting children and adults of every age.

Sadly, when we think about it, most of us know someone young or old who has a need of some kind, affecting their living on a day to day basis.

On these pages we hope to show how we are trying to bring a little variety into their lives through coach outings, shopping trips and organising a New Year Variety Show amongst other things..

Why do we do it? We believe there are limited opportunities and recources within the local area so anything we can do to brighten lives has got to be beneficial.

While we are a very small charity we do have a lovely band of volunteers - without their help we couldn't do nearly as much as we do now.

However we are always lookng for people who wish to dedicate a little bit of their time, be it 'shop sitting' (meaning that our shops are manned fully) or helping with the collection and delivery of the many items that flow through our doors each week.
