Parents and organisers of Saturday Club for Deaf Children are asking Islanders to nominate the charity to receive a £1,000 grant through the Movement for Good awards.
Saturday Club has approximately 36 Isle of Wight children registered who are all hard of hearing. The youngsters attend the West Wight-based club that provides activities, trips, experiences and outing that are focused on developing good social skills, improving communication abilities and increasing self-confidence and esteem.
The club’s officers, member and their families work hard throughout the year to generate funds to make the club successful. They regularly organise fundraising events but depend heavily on donations received from the public, companies and grant-making trusts.
Sadly, the club does not receive income from central or local government.
This is where you can help…
All the parents and organisers are asking for is to the Isle of Wight to nominate Saturday Club in the Movement for Good awards. If successful the club will receive up to £1,000.
It’s quick and easy to nominate. Just visit movementforgood.com and enter their charity number 1139242 followed by ‘disability’, and some basic information about yourself, and press nominate.
You have until Saturday 24th May 2020 to nominate.
The more nominations they get, the greater their chances of winning.
