Children’s Trust Disney on Ice - 03 Dec 2014
December saw us hand our suite at the 02 Arena over to our friends at the Children’s Trust for the children to enjoy the Disney on Ice show. A fun evening was had by all as all the characters we know and love skated the night away. When the thank you card calendar arrived from Nouf who was staying at the trust, there wasn’t a dry eye in the Clubhouse.
The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. What do we mean by ‘brain injury’?
Every year over 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness (figure drawn from NHS England). This is known as acquired brain injury.
Many children make a good recovery, but thousands have to live with ongoing, long-term difficulties. Some children are left with severe physical difficulties or learning difficulties. Some children experience more subtle, ‘hidden’ difficulties which nevertheless have a big impact on their lives.
Our rehabilitation, community and online services are there to support all children with acquired brain injury and their families.
Thousands more children are born with brain injuries or develop severe disabilities as a result of a degenerative conditions. Our medical services and special school give children with the most complex disabilities and health needs the chance to live their lives to the full.
Please support the Trust in any way you can. www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk
