We are delighted to have helped local children’s charity Pathways 4 All hit their fundraising target to support the build of a new sensory path.
Pathways 4 All is a parent-led charity, based in Benton, providing play and leisure services for disabled children and young people. Over the last 2 years, they have been working towards funding much needed improvements to their centre, including the installation of a wheelchair-accessible sensory path.
Our recent donation of £1,500 has helped Pathways 4 All reach the target of £4,200 needed to build the path, and they’re now hoping construction will be completed in time for the summer holidays.
Like many local charities, Pathways 4 All were hit hard by the pandemic and were forced to close their doors in March last year, only re-opening again this week. Lynn McManus, founder and CEO of Pathways 4 All said that after an initial slow down, fundraising activity picked up thanks to the efforts of parents and support from the local community: “We’ve been amazed by the generosity and hard work of our parents, friends and supporters in the local community.
“We’re one hundred per cent reliant on funding and volunteers to keep the centre running. So, without support from donors like Muckle we wouldn’t be able to continue to provide disabled children and young people the opportunity to play, learn and grow.”
Jason Wainwright, managing partner at Muckle said: “Pathways 4 All’s commitment to benefitting the lives of children and their families is truly inspiring, and we’re thrilled that our donation has helped them reach their target.
“Lynn and her team are doing a fantastic job under difficult circumstances and we’re looking forward to working with them in the future.”
