Following a vote at its recent AGM, the Trinity Parents’ Association (TPA) has announced that this year’s charity partner is The Children’s Trust.
The aim of The Children’s Trust is to ensure that every child with a brain injury or neurodisability has access to information, advice, support and care to improve their life chances. The charity’s strategy is to make it harder for brain injury to support children and families, when and where they need it. A few miles from Trinity School, its Brain Injury Community Service helps children to make the best possible recovery. Working in partnership with Trinity, which understands the importance of fulfilling a child’s potential, will allow it to continue to grow its services to support more children affected by brain injury. More information on the charity can be found here.
Fundraising efforts for the charity begin at the TPA’s flagship event, the Trinity Ball, themed this year as ‘Strictly Trinity’, which takes place on Friday 13th November, from 6.30pm until midnight. This will be a glittering evening of entertainment including a three-course dinner, music from the Trinity Big Band, and plenty of dancing.
To give an idea of what funds raised can help with:
£20 funds one child to a horse riding session as part of their physiotherapy
£200 funds a music system to help children have fun and give them added stimulation
£560 funds a full time Music Therapist for a week, supporting around 20 children with brain injury
£1,500 funds a walking aid
Hannah Vince, Partnerships Manager, Education, at the charity, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen as Trinity’s charity of the year. Thank you to everyone who voted for us! We look forward to working with you over the next year.”
