One of the fundamental principles of U Support is to make sure that as many U Support Kids as possible get the chance to experience a wonderful day out. We arrange these experiences by working closely with hospitals, schools, hospices, charities, social services and other, similar organisation to ensure that this happens. We are constantly expanding our network of contacts.
U Support has been able to purchase season tickets for the 2014/15 season from six Football Clubs - Southampton, Wigan, Brighton, Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Leyton Orient, as well as holding fundraising events with Reading and Tottenham. We also purchase tickets to special games such as the FA Cup and distribute them free to U Support Kids. This season U Support will provide over 3000 match day experiences, for free, to U Support Kids and their parents/carers.
As well as this we also work very closely with the Saints Foundation offering experiences at an event called 'Dream Days'. We hope to be able to offer more 'Dream Day' experiences, at more clubs, in the future.
In addition to the Football experiences we also buy and freely distribute tickets to various musical concerts and theatre productions. U Support Kids have in the past been able to see Olly Murs, JLS, One Direction and Take That to name a few.
We also provide various other experiences such as Disneyland trips, Fish-O-Mania, Rugby matches and we would love to provide more.
U Support relies on donations, grants and fundraising events to enable it to operate.
U Support's goal is simple - to open a whole world of opportunities and experiences for U Support Kids.
