In April this year Happy Days Children’s Charity were awarded grant funding to cover the costs of organising two trips for children with additional needs across Buckinghamshire.

In August, 13 children from High Wycombe – who have all witnessed domestic abuse and are living in a refuge – went to Odds Farm Park. Trips like this enable the children to broaden their experiences, gain self confidence, and have fun whilst spending time away from the refuge. The drawings below show how enjoyable the trip was for these children.

In addition to this, last week 149 children from Alfriston School in Beaconsfield went to see Aladdin at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre. The children all have varying disabilities such as learning difficulties, ADHD and autistic spectrum disorders.

Happy Days Charity arrange these experiences to give children the opportunity to take part in an activity more often enjoyed by the wider community, helping to increase the children’s confidence and assisting with their future development.
