The Mayors’ Appeal.
Two local charities will benefit from the year.
Fairplay is a registered charity which supports children and young people with sensory, physical, learning and behavioural disabilities by providing youth clubs, befriending , residential breaks and parent support groups. It is currently trying to raise money to develop a one and a half acre site at its new Fairplay Centre in Chesterfield, into an innovative garden for the young people. Designed in collaboration with Sheffield University it will feature a wheelchair carousel, outdoor musical instruments and a tactile wall block amongst many other activities. Its a unique project, the first of its kind in the UK and will set new standards in inclusive design.
This year the mayoral appeal will focus on raising funds to purchase specialist outdoor play equipment for the new Fairplay garden. The specialist play equipment will open up the world of play to children who are often unable to access mainstream play facilities. Your donation will help towards the cost of:
- Wheelchair Carousel £8,000
- Nest swing with hoisting platform £7,000
- Outdoor musical instrument £4,000
- Tactile wall block £1,000
- Reflective Sphere £500
- Shimmer Mirror £200
- Sensory wind mobile £10
Chesterfield Samaritans. This charity offers 24 hour emotional support to people in our town who are distressed and maybe even suicidal. They currently receive around 26,000 contacts every year and have to raise £25,000 a year to meet their costs.
We have also decided that 10% of the money raised will go to the Chesterfield Samaritans.
Chesterfield Samaritans can be contacted on 01246 270000 or 08457 909090.
The Mayoral Appeal will help both charities meet their needs.
There are many charity Appeal Events scheduled for the year ahead (see below ) - more are being added throughout the weeks.
