Festival in the Park 2018
August 29, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm| £3
“Festival in the Park” is Lifted’s annual disability-friendly fun day, held at Wythenshawe Park Athletics Track with the support of Simply Cycling, a non-profit organisation that offers accessible cycling to disabled people across Manchester.
There will be tables selling all sorts of small items (bric-a-brac, toys), as well as snacks, iced lollies and refreshments stalls, and a hot food station where you can buy burgers and chips. We will also have a teddy tombola and a raffle with some fantastic prizes to be won.
It’s not all for the kids, though, as we have invited a few organisations to come over and set up stalls, where you can get information and ask about services and support they provide to children and young people with disabilities.We currently have the Department for Work and Pensions’ Carer’s Allowance Unit, IAS Manchester, Manchester Carers Network, and the School Nurse Health Service confirmed to come. Some Parent Champions will also be there on the day, if anyone needs information about Manchester’s SEND Local Offer.
Some people from PleydellSmithyman Limited will man a stand in the venue to do a consultation about Wythenshawe Park. Have your say on how to make Wythenshawe Park more accessible and how we can make the park a place where you want to spend time and have fun.
This event doubles as a fundraiser for the centre so please support us by coming over and sharing with your friends and family who care for people with disabilities.
The centre is currently closed until further notice.
