A SENSORY trolley to help disabled children better enjoy their time together was officially presented to Bracknell charity KIDS last weekend.

Easthampstead Rotary Club present new sensory trolley to disabled young people's charity KIDS

Easthampstead Rotary Club held a golf fundraising day to raise money to buy the £4,000 trolley which was handed over during a special presentation attended by the Mayor. The new interactive equipment uses lights, sound and touch to help improve the communication skills of young people with autism who attend groups at Rowans and Sycamore Children’s Centre.

Clare Purner, service manager of the charity, said: “It’s something to bring them together, so they can play with each other rather than separately.

“The trolley will stimulate the communication of our verbal and non-verbal young people, it’s already made such a big difference to the group. They love it.”

KIDS, based in Bracknell since 2008, offers support to disabled people from the ages of three to 25.

Ms Purner said: “We are so grateful for all of the help from the Rotary Club who have supported us for such a long time.”
