KAPOK 88 ‘swing’ into action, donating wall protection for local School Sensory room

The charity, Hope House School & Vacation Centre in Balderton, Nottinghamshire pupils benefit from our padded wall protection.

Hope House School and Vacation centre is a small independent school, which is a charity and supports people of all ages who have an autism spectrum disorder.  Set in the Newark countryside, Terri Westmoreland, principal and her team at the school make a difference every day to children’s and young adults’ lives. The school offer places to over 25 pupils, some who reside at the school.

Jason Wood, Health & Safety Manager contacted us for a quote back in September as they are installing a swing within their sensory room and were looking for suitable wall padding to protect the pupils whilst they enjoy the equipment.

Richard Annable, managing director “I was asked to quote, but on visiting the school and seeing for the value & care this Charity provides families, as a parent to young children myself, I wanted to support them as best as possible. So, we designed, manufactured and installed our padded interior wall protection as a donation to the charity”.

Terri Westmoreland, school principal: “As a Charity we are very grateful to anyone who donates money or goods to help our school.  But the making of the padding for our Sensory Room goes one step beyond.  It has enabled us to purchase a swing for the children to use indoors, ensuring that they receive the therapy that they need.  The children who use Hope House would probably not understand the generosity of this gift, but the staff, the volunteers and the Trustees are extremely grateful”.
