Family Fun Days 2014 needs your support

Kim  Dale By Kim Dale

Family Fun Days 2014 - a series free events for all families.2014 we have lost a lot of funding and the children are sad that we cannot include the Climbing Walls but we are hoping to get support.

Every year a number of very inspirational people travel around our Borough - taking open air, green space, sport and arts events out to 20 villages and town recreational grounds. Last year over 5,000 people attended with children of all ages. The children really look forwards to the events returning but alas, this year we are losing a lot of funding due to cuts - this free event for everyone will be losing the inclusion of the challenging climbing walls. We need £12,000 and are seeking this amount from a number of sources in the hopes that we can raise enough money to include the climbing walls at the Family Fun Days for the children to continue to build on their existing climbing skills. We need help from people who would like to make the children happy this summer.

What we'll deliver:

  • Have the Climbing Walls return to our month long series of events - 20 sites in all.

Why it's a great idea:

Many children do not have the opportunity to climb in a safe way, professionally instructed way. They love climbing so very high. The skills of climbing not only are fun at the time, building confidence and skills but inspirational to the children, who might afterwards continue to build on their climbing skills and perhaps even one day save a life. The skies the limits for children who love to climb. The children get very excited every year knowing that this opportunity will be returning. This year due to funding cuts we cannot bring the Walls to the children at our events - that is unless we get some help.

Steps to get it done:

  • Planning for the 20 events has already begun.
  • Local Parishes are pledging small amounts towards achieving the aims.
  • We are sending requests to the private sector in the hopes that someone will help to fund the Climbing Walls.
