Please, be a star & help a child sparkle

Now, more than ever, Sparkle needs your support to keep our services going, and ensure we have the funds to get our clubs up and running as soon as it is safe to do so. Please donate anything you can to help.

 

We’re Sparkle, the official charity of the Serennu Children's Centre in Newport, and Nevill Hall Children’s Centre in Abergavenny. The guiding principle for the Sparkle Appeal is to ensure that children and young people with disabilities and/or developmental difficulties and their families are fully supported and able to participate in valued childhood experiences, with access to the same range of opportunities, life experiences, activities and community services as any child and their family.

Life isn’t easy for some of our children, young people or their families, The Sparkle Team want to ensure the best possible facilities and support are in place this is why the Sparkle Appeal raises money throughout the year to fund the unique services, trained staff and state-of-the-art equipment.

Sparkle have been absolutely amazing

This charity has without a doubt been incredible for us as a family to be just that....a family. Ava is autistic, she has many difficulties one of which is intense meltdowns, mostly over the smallest of things. Things we don’t or will never understand. Throughout our journey Sparkle have been absolutely amazing. Here you can be you, the children can be children without any discrimination. They support all members of the family and provide so much. I can take Ava to the park, Medi cinema or the family swimming pool (some of the many things available) and not have to worry if she screams or hits out because there is support.

An opportunity to offload my worries

Amelia is 7 and goes to the sibling group there. It’s a group where they have fun and is run through the Helping Hands psychologist service. Through play, Amelia is able to tell them of any worries or upset she has. And me, somedays I struggle. I struggle with how hard some days are. With how things will be in the future and I am the type of person who keeps it to myself. Yet this special place and the incredible family liaison officer has given me many an opportunity to offload my worries or answer any questions I may have. So I am able to be the best version of myself. For my girls.

We would be lost without it

This is how special Sparkle is. Many families who go to Sparkle, use it as a lifeline. Many families all with different disabilities and developmental difficulties. But yet we all have something in common, Sparkle. Now during this crisis of COVID-19, it is petrifying to think that this wonderful charity may not survive. For me personally, we would be lost without it. It is the one place where we can spend quality time as a family. Where there is support at the end of the phone or as soon as you step over the doorway. Where Ava can be herself without no judgement and both my girls are able to do activities which we would never be able to do outside of Sparkle. It truly is the most remarkable place. One that needs help, one that must continue to survive.

Can’t thank you enough

We can’t thank you enough for trying to keep sparkle alive because it’s so important to our children. People don’t realise you are a charity and we thank our lucky stars for what you do and just want to say thank you in abundance and from the bottom of our hearts let you know how much we appreciate you. So looking forward to seeing you soon
