Special Educational Needs
The Sayers Croft Trust has an extensive Special Educational Needs Programme supporting individuals, families and groups with a variety of physical, mental, social and financial difficulties. One of our main aims is to make all the facilities of Sayers Croft available to those who may otherwise be unable to access them due to physical, financial or social disadvantage. We do this through 3 main areas: our dedicated Action Stations activity days, free child places and bursaries on educational day visits, and continuous adaption of our facilities to ensure accessibility for all. If you would like to donate to our Special Needs Programme please do so here, all the money raised will help us continue and expand our vital programme.
Goal: £1000Raised: £0
The Burrow refurbishment
The Burrow is our community building available free of charge to groups, organisations and individuals as a rehearsal and meeting space, for birthday parties and youth clubs. The money we raise will help us to replace our current tables, which are old, bulky and primarily designed for adults. We will purchase new tables more appropriate for children that will allow us to use our limited space much more flexibly. This is all part of any ongoing refurbishment which has so far seen a new fence around our community garden, the addition of a sensory flower bed, new picnic tables, additional storage and childrens books as well as a new kitchenette (coming very soon!).
Goal: £1700Raised: £200
