HASTINGWOOD-based charity Accuro was delighted to welcome the support of Passmores Academy during its Community Day.
The week kicked off with a sponsored walk for the charity which provides a broad range of support and activities for children, young people and adults with a disability.
The walk was followed by a 1,500 leaflet drop in the surrounding area telling everyone about the many ways in which the community can volunteer with Accuro and encourage people to consider whether they may be able to provide Shared Care support to a child with a disability.
Finally on Thursday, June 19, a group of eager students descended on the charity’s Hastingwood head office.
Armed with nothing more than boundless enthusiasm, tea and cake, they knuckled down to making a huge stock of visual aids which the charity circulates to children and adults who have communication difficulties.
Accuro’s Community Co-ordinator Janice Schooling said: “We were delighted to be approached by Sheila Sumsion, of Passmores Academy, who worked with us to schedule a range of activities where the students could make a real contribution to their house charity whilst also having fun.”
Accuro’s services range from Shared Care, Parenting Support and Play and Holiday Schemes across west Essex, youth groups in Harlow (ASD), Loughton, Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow, through to an Adult Friendship Scheme and Community Gardening Project.
Further details of the work the charity does, and all future Accuro fundraising events, can be seen on the charity’s website www.accuro.org.uk.
