Families Enjoy a Day Out at Krispy Kreme (Quote From "New Life" Below:)

A fun outing at the Krispy Kreme Donut factory at Trafford Park in Manchester was a great opportunity to meet some of the families the Brian Kennedy Trust has supported through its partnership with Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children.

Newlife Foundation is the UK’s largest charity provider of specialist equipment for children with disabilities and terminal illness. The Trust has donated £10,800 to Newlife Foundation to help support disabled children through emergency loans of equipment, loans of specialist toys ‘pods’ and equipment grants.

Three of the families supported through this partnership met up with BKT director Linda Miles at the Trafford Park venue. A tour of the factory was followed by a hands-on opportunity for the children to make and decorate their own tasty teatime treats.

Newlife Regional Fundraiser Claire Kelly said: “It was lovely to meet up with Linda and the families so we can all see what a huge difference the funding has made to their lives. We also had the chance to showcase Newlife’s Play Therapy Pod service which offers loans of specialist toys and help increase awareness of how we can help children with disabilities or terminal illness in the Greater Manchester area.

‘We really appreciate all the support and donations we’ve received in the region, including Krispy Kreme placing collection cans in their outlets. A lovely day was had by all.”
