KIDS is bidding for some funding from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awarded to local community projects.

KIDS has been shortlisted as one of the projects to receive a grant.

Why you should vote

KIDS Chelsea Adventure Playground one of a few specialist playgrounds in London that supports disabled children and their siblings.

It is a safe, closed-access site with wide outdoor space and an indoor play centre, where disabled children can play in an inclusive green space, challenge themselves, discover new interests, meet other local children and have fun independently of their parents.

The children have expressed an interest in making their own puppets and to perform as a team therefore the grant would go towards facilitating a Puppet Making workshop. This will help to bring out their creativity, social, and emotional skills. It will also encourage them to interact with their peers and bring the whole playground together.
