SPECIALIST sensory kits are on their way to 15 disabled children in Coventry to help improve their lives at home.
Disability charity Caudwell Children received £1,500 from Tesco’s community grants to fund sensory therapy toys.
Shoppers to the city’s Tesco stores could vote for charities they wanted to support and Caudwell Children was among the winners.
The organisation provides specialist equipment for disabled children as part of its Get Sensory Packs campaign.
The equipment is selected by the charity’s occupational therapists to help disabled and autistic children play with family and friends or regulate their emotions if they feel overwhelmed.
Trudi Beswick, Caudwell Children CEO, said it meant so much to be selected for the funding.
“A huge thank you to everyone that voted for Caudwell Children – the sensory equipment we’ll now be able to provide will help to change children’s lives.”
Tesco customers can vote for three different groups each time they shop. Every three months, votes are tallied and three groups in each of Tesco’s regions are awarded funding.
