The importance of LGBTQ+ spaces on International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia
The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy (LCCCP) runs the yearly Muswell Hill Festival, in Cherry Tree Wood.
This year’s event, on 9 September, was particularly successful; not only was the sun out, but the fundraising was up 200% on previous years. There were a variety of events to get involved in including, arts and crafts stalls, the popular donkey rides, monster veg competition, dog show and a dance troupe.
The event aims to raise funds to support a centre and school for children with cerebral palsy in London. It is the only government approved centre and school in this region. They provide early intervention classes for babies and toddlers, give advice and training to parents and carers, provide primary education for three to eleven year olds, organize and deliver external training for other professionals working with children with cerebral palsy and holiday schemes for children with cerebral palsy and other motor disorders.
We have seen first-hand the valuable difference LCCCP makes to children and their families. We often recommend that some of our clients who have children with brain injuries visit the centre to see the services LCCCP offer.
Kingsley Napley’s relationship with LCCCP began 3 years ago and we remain a proud corporate partner of LCCCP. As a corporate partner, we continue to fundraise for the charity and we continue to support their aim of maximising the independence, confidence and self-esteem of children with cerebral palsy.
I was a volunteer at this year’s festival. Having never been before, I was amazed at the scale of the festival and the variety of activities and food stalls there. I assisted with setting up the dog show and helped with getting events organised, to ensure everything ran according to the schedule. There was a fantastic atmosphere and I thoroughly enjoyed the music and entertainment on offer. The weather was perfect and I managed to eat my bodyweight in candy floss whilst simultaneously dancing along with the zumba group.
