How TheGivingMachine has helped with our fundraising
The Hyperclub was established in 2012 as a self-funded group supporting many children with special needs. We expanded our services in 2015 to accommodate.
We are currently supporting over 70 people a week including adults and elderly people facing social exclusion due to health conditions or physical disabilities. We offer them transportation to our location, encouraging them to participate in group activities, building friendships and relationships in order to enable them to become more independent and confident enough to access other services in the local area. Unfortunately there are not enough other resources available so many of our service users attend our club three times a week. Our activities include cooking classes, prize bingo, board games, arts & crafts, table tennis, pool, we have several adult activities over four times a week and two children’s clubs in the evenings.
Our club runs all year without any closures in the holiday periods. We accommodate school children during the holiday periods offering free school meals and activities. We also have a school clothing bank for parents with limited means.
