Providing Unforgettable Experiences
Attending a football match, the theatre or a concert sounds a simple idea, but for those children who are either disabled, disadvantaged or suffering from a life limiting condition, the very notion is often beyond their financial and physical means. Yet the difference it can make to these U Support Kids cannot be underestimated. Sitting pitch-side watching their favourite footballers, listening to their pop idol perform live or seeing the lights of a West End show means so much to these young people and their families.
Seeing the sheer enjoyment and fun these children experience is truly wonderful; watching a young lad with severe disability move his arm to say thank you; or watching a mum openly weep as her daughter meets her musical idols are emotional experiences that pull hard on the heart strings, but which makes us especially determined to ensure more and more young people can have similar experiences through U Support.
The demand to provide such experiences is growing every day, but these are not provided free of charge and U Support needs to raise funds to pay for them. We have been able to purchase thousands of experiences each year as a result of our fundraising events and with your help we hope to be able to provide thousands more.
