Following a recent poll on Facebook, where the generous owners of Oggy Oggy –The Pasty Company in Taunton, asked the public to help them choose a charity for them to support for the new year, Escape Support Group were nominated by many of its members, and they are very grateful that they have been fortunate enough to be selected as Oggy Oggy’s Charity of 2019.
ESCAPE is a Somerset based charity that provides activities, days out, events and mini-breaks for children with disabilities and their families and recognises the need for families to have opportunities to spend quality time doing fun things together –not just the child with the disability.
Everything ESCAPE does is heavily subsidised –their aim is to cover 50% of costs -to ensure affordability for everyone, and excellent value for money. They provide transport (including wheelchair accessible vehicles) to and from the locations ensuring the day is as stress free as possible for their members.
In 2019 Escape will be visiting We The Curious in Bristol, Drayton Manor, Puxton Park, Woodlands Adventure Park, Crealy, Dartmoor Zoo, The Living Coast in Torquay, Butlins, The River Dart Country Park, The Wave, Chessington Park, Longleat Festival of Lights, Bristol Hippodrome for the Christmas Panto, and St Ives in Cornwall for a carers weekend – so a packed year of activities awaits!
