We're moving home and need to create a safe and accessible play area for children with a learning disability

by Watford Mencap in Watford, England, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 1st June 2021 we'd raised £450 with 15 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

We're moving into a lovely new home in the heart of Watford.  We hope to open our doors in September 2021, but first we need to get the wonderful space ready.

Our builders are busy refurbishing the site which has been empty for years, but we want to make the garden extra special for local children with a learning disability.

The children love the outdoor space at our current home, and we want to make the new area welcoming and comfortable for them.

We want the children to be safe, have accessible playground equipment and be able to play freely.  

To achieve this, we need to clear the overgrown area, remove old slabs and broken equipment, install some specialist play surface and then provide a range of accessible and fun equipment.

To start us off, we're looking to raise £1,500 which give the children a safe play area and equipment they can enjoy.
