Well, what a difference the extension to Destiny’s family home has made for the 4-year-old.
Faced with issues of very limited space within the home for the family and for storage of equipment, coupled with lack of space for Destiny to access her sensory equipment, the family set about fundraising for the additional £4,200 required above the Disabled Facilities Grant awarded for the extension project.
The new area created on the back of the family home has provided more space for storage, more space for family time and more space to enhance Destiny’s sensory experiences.
Having been referred to Sullivan’s Heroes via the family’s Support Worker from Demelza Hospice, Destiny’s Great Aunt and Guardian Mandie details the benefit that the project has brought about:
“It has allowed more space for the family to spend time together and given Destiny the opportunities to use her sensory equipment in a safe and spacious environment.”
The project also involved creating an external ramp in order that Destiny can access the garden easily and safely from the new room.
Mandie continues, explaining the service provided by Sullivan’s Heroes:
“The charity provided support to set up a JustGiving page, ideas for fundraising and a grant of £750 to help us get started. Sullivan’s Heroes provided a fab service, Fiona is great and is very dedicated in supporting families.”
We’re delighted at Sullivan’s Heroes with the success of the project, and sign off with one final word from the family’s Support Worker Liz Cranham, from Demelza Hospice, who was involved through the process:
“Thank you for the support that you have given this family, it really has made such a difference.” Liz Cranham, Family Liaison Practitioner, Demelza Hospice Care For Children
