For the past 2 years, we have offered a wide range of exciting and enriching children’s activities for children affected by Sickle Cell. This has been a very successful and positive programme which has been well attended and received.
Unfortunately, our funding for this programme of activities from BBC Children in Need has ended. We are of course seeking alternative sources of funding that will allow us to offer further activities, but until then we will no longer be able to provide children’s activities after 31st March 2019.
We will of course still be running our annual children’s holiday in August. In addition, this year is the Sickle Cell Society’s 40th Anniversary, and we will be running various celebratory events throughout the year to commemorate this. We hope you will support us in this (find out more at www.sicklecellsociety.org/scs40/).
We will keep you informed of all the activities and events that we will be running this year, and hope that you will continue to support the Society as you have been doing.
Please check our website and social media channels regularly for updates and events that will be taking place during the year.
We would like to thank all children and their parents/carers, volunteers and volunteer parents who have supported and participated in the children’s activity programme.
