Fundraising for BOSP
Unfortunately due to COVID-19, BOSP has had to cancel or postpone many of its community fundraising events over the past 18 months. We are hoping that you will continue to support the vital work of our small charity via our new virtual events, so that we will be in a position to ensure the disabled children and young people who rely on our services, do not remain isolated, once this crisis is over - thank you for your help!
Fundraising and donations are vital to BOSP; please encourage family and friends to support us!
BOSP is almost entirely self-funded and is constantly researching and applying for grants in order to keep the prices of sessions as low as possible for parents and carers. We also rely on the generosity of donations from friends in the community and fundraising events to help us cover the remainder of the costs.
For over 30 years BOSP has been supporting Essex families by providing short breaks for children and young people with complex disabilities or life-limiting conditions. BOSP believes that these children and young people should be offered the same opportunities as their mainstream peers and offers a full programme of exciting and interesting sessions each term as well as including provision for every school holiday.
The extra strain on families of children and young people with disabilities/life-limiting conditions makes these sessions essential to our families, therefore it is vital for us to keep raising funds to enable us to continue our work.
If you or a family member are able to walk, run, climb or wade through mud in aid of BOSP, it would be much appreciated. Or if you prefer a less exhausting way of helping us to raise funds, there is always a BOSP quiz, lunch, afternoon tea or tombola stall you can attend. Perhaps your place of work has a Corporate Social Responsibility programme and would be interested in supporting a small charity such as BOSP.
For any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch, we'd love to hear from you! If you would like any further information about how to support BOSP please contact the office on 01268 553117 or email: [email protected]
