We’ve had a lot to write about and keep updated for next weekend’s alternate festivity plans.
But what about THIS weekend?
This weekend would be an ideal time to raise funds for those who need a little bit of a helping hand in life’s everyday activities. What you and I may take for granted is not always the same for others. There may be obstacles, or there may be full-on inabilities due to limitations. You’d be quite surprised at how many battle, on a daily basis, just to do the simplest of tasks.
Have you ever counted how many steps and movements are required to get out of bed and make your way to those first sips of coffee? Many have. Step by step and movement by movement. Now imagine doing that with almost every activity in the course of one day. Now imagine being a kid having to do this daily.
And that’s where PHAB-KIDS comes into the picture. They have over 200 clubs through England and Wales for all age ranges… where activities and holidays become less isolated. Where you join together … because … well, let’s face it. It’s a lonely world when you can’t just jump out of bed and run down the hallway to the coffeemaker. (In this case, the refrigerator for milk or juice. Kids shouldn’t drink coffee.) When every day tasks take three.. .ten… times longer to complete.
So this weekend, if you’re in the UK and are so inclined… please join us as we cheer on our very own Gary Clarke of The Cureheads in his Pre-Race Charity Ball! Support will be provided by Arcane Winter and Stereo Juggernaut. It all takes place at the Electrowerkz (Slimelight).
