We’re thrilled that our 2017 charity partner, Over The Wall, has been voted a GamesAid charity of 2017!
We’d like to thank everyone who voted for Over The wall, who received a hugely beneficial £70,000 cheque. The money will make a massive impact in supporting their charitable efforts in hosting therapeutic recreational camps for children with life-limiting illnesses.
The GamesAid support will allow Over The Wall to provide even more children with a place at their camps, which are completely free of charge. Alongside a range of recreational and educational activities for the children and their family, the camps play a key role in teaching its residents to reach beyond the perceived limitations of their illness, and build confidence, self-esteem and social skills.
“Over The Wall provides invaluable experiences to children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.” Said Aardvark Swift MD Ian Goodall, “The camps they host do a world of good for the children involved, and act as an important catalyst to build up confidence and life skills. They do great work, and I’m that Aardvark Swift will be supporting their efforts to reach as many children as possible.”
Feedback from the Over The Wall’s most recent camp has recently come in and highlights how impactful these camps can be to not only the children, but to their whole families as well.
“Camp had made a huge difference to our family and made the kids so happy amongst so many things we cannot change, and we are so grateful for that. Over the wall will be part of our family forever and the kids love all the amazing memories they have. They both talk about Over The Wall every day!”- parent
“I’d like to thank every single one of you that makes Over the Wall happen. Who knew that within a week, you would help me immensely with issues I’ve dealt with for 12 years. My roommate was also epileptic and it reassuring to have someone in the same boat. Also, I have had trouble connecting and making friends, I can truly say that I have established a great, funny, witty group of friends, whose illness never defines them. Overall, thank you so much and I am definitely applying next year!”
Aardvark Swift is proud to be partnered with Over The Wall, and we’re excited to be supporting the charity with a number of efforts.
