The Radstock Juniors Club were chosen by local people, at the 5th Radstock & Westfield Big Local Dragons' Den, to be funded to provide fun yet educational activities to their members.
The Radstock Juniors Club draws members from Radstock, Westfield and the surrounding area. Children aged between 11 and 18 that are affected by a range of learning disabilities that live in the area use this club because it provides them with good social opportunities. The club offers parents and carers short but regular respite from the demands of caring 24/7 - an extremely valuable service.
Amanda Leonard, fundraiser, told us "The project has given local children with learning disabilities the same opportunities as their peers. The project has helped the children to develop and use their skills, build confidence to enjoy and take part in new activities designed to broaden their horizons. The project has implemented a change for the better, now and in the future. The experiences the children has had will enable some of them to further develop the tools needed to become more self-sufficient as they grow up."
