£1000 donation from Clevedon Freemasons.
Springboard is a charity supporting children from birth to 5 years old with additional needs and disabilities, and their families.
Springboard’s vision is where every child from birth to 5 years in North Somerset has the care, education, support and opportunity they need to reach their full potential. It was started by a small group of parents in 1986 who needed help with their very young children who all had disabilities. Springboard now provides a vital service for around 100 children per week.
Every weekday in term time Springboard runs specialist play and learning sessions from four settings in Clevedon and Weston–Super–Mare and also weekly Stay and Play sessions for children with their parents/carers. Springboard have a Family Support Service and a Traded Inclusion Service.
Liz Smith, Springboard Business Manager, said “We depend heavily on support from the community to enable us to continue to work with children and families. We recently made a difficult decision that our minibus had come to the end of its useful life.
This generous donation of £1000 from Chapter Marine Masons at Clevedon will be used to take children from our base on outings around the local area, using hired minibuses or community transport.
