Rock’s trip to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the MusicalThe funding enabled Rock Foundation UK to send most of our students along with parents / Carers on a day trip to Leeds Playhouse, to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Musical.

Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being in a special production, which had a relaxed attitude to noise (voluntary and involuntary) and movement in the auditorium. The lights stayed on throughout the performance, and a dedicated sensory space external to the auditorium was showing a live stream.

Give Them A Sporting Chance is a registered charity that gives carers and those with disabilities of all ages the opportunity to make their sporting or recreational dreams come true. A Sporting Chance is recommended by someone, in an organisation or a group, for a carer or for a disabled person, regardless of their age or disability.
