To provide a safe and welcoming play environment for children and adults who love everything brick! A chance to build without limits.

by Laura Fielder-Smith in Southampton, Hampshire, England

Block Party Events has been operating for the last 18 months, providing play events, birthday parties and school/community sessions across Hampshire and the South Coast. We are looking to build a stronger foundation and have a base by which to expand our provision.

Our aim is to create a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment for all children and adults to play. Our vast array of loose Lego bricks provide limitless opportunities to create, whilst our 100+ complete Lego sets allow beginners and master builders alike a chance to produce builds to be proud of. 

We will be continuing to support local autism groups, youth groups and school communities as well as still provide birthday parties, skills sessions and corporate team building.

At least a third of the money we raise will go towards subsidising SEN sessions and providing sensory facilities for those on the spectrum. We are also looking for support in purchasing furnishings such as additional building tables, comfortable chairs (for those likely to stay all day and build),  baby change facilites, soft play furnishings to keep little builders safe as well as all important Lego sets to keep us all building longer.

Any support you give us is greatly appreciated and not only will you feel a warm glow after you donate but we have a selection of rewards to say thank you.
