A DOWNEND business is backing a charity which provides activities for children with complex needs.
Bristol-based Flamingo Chicks aims to bring dance to people of all abilities and raise awareness for those who need extra help, using the hashtag #BalletNotBarriers.
The charity approached the Mortgage Advice Bureau, owned by Daniel Gould and Adam Wyrill, to ask about support from the company’s charitable foundation, which has awarded it £5,000
Daniel said: “The foundation was established to create awareness about the growing needs of communities in all areas and has since supported projects across a spectrum of interests and needs, from health and well-being to the environment and conservation.
“We are committed to supporting community-based projects brought to them by staff, customers, and business partners, and cannot wait to see the money put to good use by Flamingo Chicks.”
Flamingo Chicks founder Katherine Sparkes MBE said: “It has given us all such a huge boost and will mean we can get even more disabled children dancing. We are beaming!”
