Happy Days are pleased to announce that we have received a fantastic £27,000 from The Slater Foundation.
The Project, which will run through the year, will see 3,000 children benefit from a range of performing art experiences such as story plays, musicals and from a tribal dance group called 'The Lions of Zululand'.
The opportunity to have a day's visit from the Lions of Zululand (pictured right) will provide an African cultural experience that they would never usually benefit from, so it is a fantastic opportunity for the children.
The theatre performances provided will help the children learn through a story play. Not only will this bring the children laughter and joy but it will also cover issues, such as: bullying, bravery, family life, trust, friendship etc. Some of these shows work with the children on a ‘hands on’ basis. Allowing children that have complex health needs and severe/profound learning difficulties to be stimulated with a truly sensory experience, helping them beyond their daily routine.
All the experiences will enhance their future development as they move towards adulthood with confidence. We would like to thank The Slater Foundation for helping us support so many children.
