Over the past two years we have began to work closely with two fantastic local charities. The work these two organisations do is second to none and we are very proud to be associated with them. Throughout 2010 Cool Designs will once again be supporting events organised by the two charities.
North East – The Evening Chronicle Sunshine Fund
The Evening Chronicle Sunshine Fund endeavours to enhance the lives of disabled children in the north east, and help everyone associated with the child. There are hundreds of parents with disabled children in the North East.
They understand that it can cost thousands of pounds to adapt a home and purchase adequate transport and equipment for a disabled child, and that the local authority has very limited funding. The Sunshine Fund is there to provide that much needed equipment
North West – All Stars / Wingate Centre
The Wingate Centre is a registered charity whose prime objective is to work with people of all ages with disabilities. It is also the policy of the Centre to promote integration in all of its work.
The work of the Centre is two – fold :
Firstly, the Wingate Centre offers
Educational Residential and Holiday facilities.
In 2010 they have completed the redecoration and refurbishment of the ground floor of the centre to follow on from the 2008 refurbishment of the first floor. – this completes their programme of renewal to bring them up to the high standard they know people expect.
Being based in a rural part of South Cheshire makes us an ideal holiday location with many interesting places to visit in the area. The excellent accommodation is specifically designed and equipped for disabled and special needs groups. Mainstream groups are also most welcome.
Accommodation comprises nine wheelchair accessible ground floor twin bedrooms with hand basins, with a full range of disabled bathrooms, shower rooms, toilets and sluice room. There is also a lounge/ TV room and games room. Further accommodation and facilities including two further lounges are available on the first floor which has 2 lifts for access, and can cater for up to thirty guests.
Secondly, the Wingate Centre
has a ‘GymMark’ accredited gymnasium one of the first 100 in the UK to reach this level of professionalism.
It provides gymnastic and trampoline training for recreation and competition to all ages and levels of disability and ability. Their superb 7,000 square foot gymnasium offers classes for both mainstream and disabled people with a policy of integration whenever possible.
They can cater for all from the severely disabled who use gymnastics as therapy to those competing at National level.
Cool Designs support this charity alongside the All Stars Charity team who work tirelessly to organise various events throughout the year. Typically these are football matches against ex-football stars from the likes of Liverpool.
