What is the Love halow Campaign?
Now in its second year, the Love halow Campaign will be running throughout February 2015. This is a chance for the public, schools and businesses to learn more about halow and help raise vital awareness for the young people with learning disabilities we support. We are asking for your help to spread the word and raise much needed funds for our work.
At halow we know how important it is for young people with a learning disability to get out and about, meet friends and make new ones, keep healthy and try new and exciting things. We have a variety of social activities for young people each month from bowling, sports and youth clubs to discos and theatre trips. These provide a great opportunity for people with learning disabilities to socialise, maintain friendship groups and improve their confidence in a fun, safe environment.
Our young people love the work we do and this month we celebrate that, highlight our work to new supporters and raise funds through our heart shaped lapel pins.
All money raised from the Love halow Campaign will go to funding life changing social activities and the young people's March Annual Party- the highlight of their social calender.
How can I get involved?
