Every summer, my niece Florence attends 3 weeks of specialist play sessions run by WeLoveCarers and CHAOS!. For my beautiful niece and lots of her friends with additional needs, this service provides them with a safe, fun, and educational place to go over the summer. For many of these children, the six week summer holiday can be traumatic without the daily routine and structure of the school environment.
Florence loves every day at CHAOS! and as a family, we are so grateful to all the inspirational volunteers who help to make her summer one to enjoy. This is why myself and Rhian have chosen CHAOS! and WeLoveCarers as the charity we would race for in our 1st Super Sprint Triathlon. I went to University with Rhian and we have been friends for nearly 20 years. Rhian is a Clinical Psychologist who specialises in children with autism and additional needs. Day to day she sees the tough challenges that children and families have to face and she was honoured to be part of the fundraising campaign to raise money for such an important and worthy charity. To this date, we have raised £1,300. We hope this goes towards putting smiles on the faces of some very important children in our community.
