This year we will be supporting The Dorset Children’s Foundation. At our fly ins we will be raising money for them, as well as on our members events and a special fundraising day at the airfield.
The Dorset Children’s Foundation was set up in 2013 to improve the lives of local sick and disabled children and since then we have donated over £750,000 to over 150 local children. They are a small, independent charity and fund medical expenses, mobility equipment and therapies not covered by the NHS. They also grant life enriching experiences, to create special memories that last longer than a lifetime.
The Dorset Children’s Foundation also provide Accessible for All sports and inclusive activities for disabled children. They’ve created a network of support for parents in a similar situation and the opportunity for our families to get together. They also run Paddy’s Purpose a disability awareness workshop, available for schools and businesses.
The three charity shops in Bournemouth, cover the modest overheads so every single penny donated goes directly to the children.
