Fundraising and Donations

What are we raising money for?

Sensory Room and Sensory Equipment

Our service users and tenants sometimes need time away from their daily activities which can sometimes be busy and noisy where there can be lots of people with varying needs and demands.

A little time away somewhere quiet, soothing and calming can make such a difference. Currently, we lack a designated quiet space within the community, but we are eager to modify our existing facilities to create a supportive environment for our service users.

To enhance this space, we plan to incorporate various sensory equipment such as bubble towers, comfortable chairs or bean bags, and potentially a ball pool (once safe to use following strict infection prevention control guidelines). Additionally, calming music will be integrated to foster a serene atmosphere.

Equally the Magic Table would be located in this space.

Orchard Lodge Fundraising Appeal

With the formal opening of the Community Activities Room on 2nd June 2019 we are proud to launch an appeal to develop the second phase of a major investment being made by our charity. This investment will ensure that we are able to continue to provide an inclusive service for those with a learning difficulty into older life.

With planning permission already secured for the second phase of investment, the ‘Orchard Lodge’ appeal will aim to raise the £1m required in order to build 4 fully accessible accommodation units with shared kitchen, dining & living room facilities. Accommodation for a live-in support worker and an assisted bathroom are also incorporated into the design of the new building.

Nominated Charities

Every year, our community comes together with a shared commitment to making a difference. We engage in a collective process to carefully nominate four charities that we would like to raise money for.

As the seasons unfold, we celebrate four lively events that fuel our fundraising endeavours. In the past we have helped raise money by hosting a Christmas disco, sponsored walk, sing-a-thon, a tuck shop and many more.

Some of the many charities we have supported include:

  • BBC Children in Need
  • Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer Care
  • East Anglian Air Ambulance
  • RNLI Wells
  • The Norfolk RDA (Riding for the Disabled)
  • Cromer Foodbank
