Could you help a child sparkle?

 

 

 

2020 has been hard for everyone! But for a family of a child with disabilities or developmental difficulties, things have been especially hard. And with the added pressures from social restrictions to money worries and mental health concerns, many families have been left feeling isolated and alone.

During these challenging times, Sparkle’s staff team have continued to be there to support our families. And that is thanks to you!

When COVID-19 hit us earlier this year, our fundraising activities and events stopped, literally overnight.  Our income was at serious risk and our future was uncertain.

However, an overwhelming response to our Emergency Appeal meant that we could carry on supporting our families.  

One of our mums explains...   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"We’d 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. Yet we all have something in common, Sparkle! Now, during this CRISIS 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 judgement and both my girls are able to do activities which we would never be able to do outside of Sparkle.  It is truly the most remarkable place. One that needs help, one that must continue to survive!”

We still very much need your help to continue our work, and would be extremely grateful if you could support us with a one off, or regular gift to help us continue to be there for families all across Gwent.
