As a charity, HAY relies on charitable donations to carry out its crucial work, and that’s why we’re enormously thankful for any financial gift we receive. However big or small, it all adds up and it’s amazing what a massive difference each donation can make to a child or young person’s life.
Here’s how your generosity could help:
It costs over £75,000 a year to run the Caterpillar Pre-School where many of the children need one-to-one support to help them overcome their specific educational, social or developmental needs. Although most parents qualify to receive the Early Education Grant or 2 Year-Old Funding, around 5% require bursary funding which HAY provides.
It also costs £15,000 per year to provide our Breakfast Club where 65% of the children we care for have been referred to us by Hounslow’s Early Intervention Team. The families we support can afford to pay only £2 per session, some even less, which is why every year we need to raise nearly £10,000 in voluntary donations to continue this vital programme.
Our FunZone club costs £17,000 per year to provide a safe and nurturing environment for primary school children. 5% of them have special or educational needs and many of their parents need extra support. The children pay a subscription of just 50p per session. We have an annual shortfall of around £16,000 which we must fill through voluntary donations.
Our Action Adventure Club costs £12,000 per year to run for children who are making the challenging transition from junior to secondary school. 2% of them have special or educational needs which require assistance from specialist staff. Each child pays 50p per session but we need to raise £12,000 a year from voluntary donations to keep it going.
So, if you feel you can give a gift to HAY, please make a donation and change lives today. https://www.justgiving.com/hay/
