Support SNAPS during lockdown with these virtual fundraising ideas! Read on for creative ways to support us while staying safe.

 

We’re calling on all SNAPS Superheroes to support us while staying safe and take on a personal challenge to raise vital funds and awareness for SNAPS!

Do a challenge, make a donation, nominate a friend

  • Set yourself a personal challenge! Whether it’s a walk around the park, a short run or a fitness challenge at home, it all counts!
  • Once you’ve completed the challenge, make a donation to SNAPS here.
  • Help a friend to join our #SNAPSSuperheroes ranks by nominating them for the challenge!

SNAPS Superhero Training School

Prep the kids to become SNAPS Superheroes by enrolling them in our virtual Superhero Training School!

Completing Superhero Training is simple: set your kids 5 acts of kindness to complete!

They could be:

  • Helping to tidy the house
  • Helping to set the table for dinner
  • Making a card to send to a neighbour to cheer them up
  • Video calling their grandparents
  • Doing something to make their siblings smile

Once they’ve completed their training and become fully fledged superheroes, make a donation to SNAPS here.

We’re always looking for more Superheroes to join our ranks, so encourage the kids to nominate a friend to get involved!

Every superhero that makes a donation will receive a certificate and colour-in medal activity sheet!

It was with heavy hearts that we recently decided to suspend our services, in line with government guidelines, to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and the families we support. We are a resourceful bunch and we are trying to find ways to continue supporting families as much as we can. This so far has included sharing useful and important resources, keeping in contact with families over the phone and by email, and arranging for craft packs to be sent out to the children we support.

The families we support rely on the vital physiotherapy we provide to help their children make crucial physical developments and the weekly support from other families to help them get through the strains that come with having a child with additional needs.  We want to make sure we can continue delivering our services to the highest standard once we open our doors again, meaning our families can find some sense of normality.

We rely upon donations to keep our doors open to families, but the COVID-19 pandemic is already having a huge impact on our ability to raise vital funds.

If you are able to spare any donation at this time to help SNAPS, we would be incredibly grateful. Every little helps us to continue supporting families both virtually and face-to-face once it is safe to do so again:

  • £5 can help us provide a craft pack for a SNAPS child during lockdown
  • £10 can buy arts and crafts materials for our services
  • £20 can provide two footballs for our Football Club
  • £40 can provide a physiotherapy session for a child with additional needs
  • £50 can help us provide a dance session at our services

If you are able to sponsor a SNAPS physiotherapy session and donate £40 or more, we’ll also send you a SNAP band to say thank you!
