MONKS CROSS CONTINUES CHARITY PARTNERSHIP WITH SNAPPY


In 2018 Monks Cross Shopping Park chose SNAPPY, a York based charity dedicated to empowering children and young people with disabilities to become their chosen charity of the year. The first joint incentive was the Christmas Gift Giving Tree, which saw generous shoppers donate over 100 Christmas presents to the families SNAPPY work with.

This year Monks Cross are asking the people of York to support again, by donating provisions  which will allow SNAPPY to continue running their play and activity programmes. These programmes are dedicated to building confidence, independence and social skills, but mostly, to give children and young people the opportunity to enjoy new experiences, have fun and make friends.

SNAPPY are looking for clothes that will allow the kids to get messy and have fun in, alongside toys, sporting items and crafting games. Donations are being collected at Monks Cross Shopping Parks, Information Centre

Anne Stamp from SNAPPY commented “We are so grateful for the support shown by Monks Cross Shoppers. The activity schemes we run are a vital outlet for the kids that attend and anything that can be donated to support the running of these groups will be gratefully received.”

Katherine Sharp, Centre Manager of Monks Cross, comments  “It’s great to see the local community coming together to support each other. SNAPPY have recently been subjected to a funding cut, so we really want to give them all the help we can in order to keep their hugely beneficial work going.”

SNAPPY


Monks Cross chosen charity for 2019 is the Snappy Trust, formerly known as Snappy (Special Needs Activities and Play Provision for York),

Originally founded in 1985 by four parents who felt that their children had a tough time over the school holidays because of limited time with friends. They got together with one of the school’s head teachers and arranged to bring some of the children into school for a few days over the summer holidays to enjoy some play activities – and Snappy was born!

​They have grown a lot since then and now support over 300 children, young people and their families each and every year. They have expanded their programmes to include a variety of activities and events and aim to empower our children and young people by developing confidence, independence and social skills but mostly, we give our children and young people the opportunity to enjoy new experiences, have fun and make friends. Snappy is very proud their reputation across the York area and of the work the incredible team.

Monks Cross will be working on a number initiatives over the year to help raise awareness and much needed funds for Snappy.

If you would like to find out more about Snappy, or make a donation, please visit their website.
