How your money will be spent:

The money raised by this quiz will fund AoD’s essential services during the summer. We need to raise a minimum of £5,000 to cover the additional costs created by the coronavirus. Our essential services include short breaks and holiday activity weeks for disabled children and young people and an advice and information service for disabled people using telephone and video calls.

  • £5 will pay for the personal protective equipment for one staff member or volunteer for one day. The cost to AoD of PPE until the end of August will be an estimated £1,875.
  • £12 will pay for meals and drinks for one disabled child or young person for one day. We ask parents to make a contribution to the costs but as some people have recently lost their jobs and seen a fall in their income, we expect to receive less money from parents this year than previously.
  • £94 will pay for an additional sessional worker per disabled child / young person per day. This extra support is now needed to ensure that everyone maintains social distancing rules. We need to hire an extra 8 sessional workers, costing AoD £18,800.
  • £230 will pay for an extra minibus and driver to pick up disabled young people. This is required to enable social distancing to take place duringjourneys. One week will cost £1,150 and the total cost to AoD until the end of August will be £5,750

By joining our Quiz Evening you will help us to cover these extra costs and make these important life-changing services possible. Please give generously!
