Variety is a charity that improves the lives of children and young people, each day throughout the UK, who are sick, disabled or disadvantage. We are now calling on the support of the local community to help win funding, for Variety, as part of the Aviva Community Fund 2017!

What is the Fund?

The Aviva Community Fund offers the chance to raise funding for important causes within your community.

Aviva state:

“It’s open to everyone – the general public as well as Aviva customers, employees, insurance brokers or financial advisers (whether associated with Aviva or not). We want you to enter a project for your community and tell us what a difference these much-needed funds could make.

Get enough votes from friends, family, and supporters in your community and your project could be entered into the Finals, where a judging panel will award the funds.”

Variety is a children’s charity who provide practical, tangible support that makes immediate differences to those children in need and their families.

All over the UK, there are children who have to cope with sickness, disability or disadvantage, and it’s tough. Tough!

Variety is relying on votes to increase their chances of winning funding up to £25,000 which they hope will allow these special children the opportunity to experience something many of us take for granted… a Christmas Party.

This will give them a break from the stresses and strains of everyday life, unconditional acceptance and a chance to be surrounded by family and friends. It is a day of celebration with the children enjoying live entertainment, activities and plenty of party food.

However, only projects with the most votes will become finalists, so additional support is vital!

More about Variety

Variety improves young lives by providing practical help (such as Sunshine Coaches, wheelchairs and specialist equipment) and memorable childhood experiences.

Their practical help makes an immediate difference. It means that children have fewer bad days and more great days. With independence, freedom, and dignity they are able to make the most of their childhood.

Variety plays a key role in building the self-esteem of children who are disadvantaged and in making them the people who they become.

Variety help fund children’s hospitals and hospices, creating environments that are more welcoming and reassuring. Children cared for at home are given specialist equipment to alleviate the symptoms of chronic conditions, improve their everyday care and help reduce stress for both children and parents.

Youth clubs receive funding for equipment, enabling them to offer more facilities, attracting vulnerable young people and keeping them off the street.

That’s what Variety mean by making a difference.
