Garden party at Kidderminster Short Breaks for families

Kidderminster Short Breaks Published Monday, 23rd July 2018

A garden party for 30 children was hosted by Kidderminster Short Breaks (KSB).

The home rated outstanding by Ofsted held the occasion for youngsters who stay there and their families on Sunday (22).


Kidderminster Short Breaks provides respite care to children with autism and other learning disabilities. They also raised £880 to develop a new garden at the home.


The whole community came together to organise the fun-filled party including Kidderminster Harriers Football Club, Project Linus, DeBeers Garden Centre, Merchants Fish and Chips, Drayton Manor theme park, Perdiswell Leisure Centre, BIZ Powertools, Luxury Essentials, Jessica Morris Yoga, Wyre Forest Leisure Centre and W Factor winner Lucy Gidley.


The garden party was also supported by Councillor Tracey Onslow and Councillor Nathan Desmond.


Councillor Onslow said: "This garden party is a great example of how communities come together in support and appreciation of one another. We are grateful for everyone who has supported us and made this party such a success. We hope the children have enjoyed the party with their family and friends. We cannot wait to see the garden that will be developed with all your generous contributions."


Kidderminster Short Breaks was awarded an Ofsted outstanding rating earlier this year in January.


A total of 30 families rely on the four-bed care home which is located in Kidderminster and looks after children from across Worcestershire.
