KIDS charity

/ 22 March 2018

KIDS is a national charity working with children and young people aged 0-25, irrespective of their disability, supporting some of society’s most vulnerable families. KIDS provide over 120 services across the country and one of these is KIDS Hackney Adventure Playground. The playground is a special space where disabled children and young people are given confidence and independence to enjoy leisure and recreational activities with the encouragement and support of professionally trained, caring play workers. It is a lifeline for over 100 families that would otherwise have no alternative option.

Do The Right Thing’s secret millionaire, Joe Fournier heard the KIDS Hackney Adventure Playground was at risk of closure this year, and decided to surprise the staff and families that use the playground with a donation of the entire £100,000 needed to keep it going.

KIDS need to continue to raise fund each year to cover these costs and keep this vital resource open. If you would like to get involved and support their campaign, visit their website: www.kids.org.uk/hackney-campaign
