Aico are hosting a Family Fundraising Festival this summer in support of two amazing local charities, The Movement Centre and Little Stars.

The day will be fun filled with various activities and attractions for all ages, live music, circus acts, local food, and drink suppliers and so much more. The fundraising day is taking place at the picturesque Brynkinalt Estate from 12pm until 7pm on Saturday 15th July 2023 with all proceeds going to two incredible charities.

The Movement Centre, a specialist treatment centre, helps children who have Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, or other diagnoses to achieve new skills through increased strength and control of their movement. They do this through the use of Targeted Training, a specialist therapy that is currently only provided by The Movement Centre, within the UK.

Fundraising and Marketing Officer, Curtis Langley can’t wait to get involved, commenting “The Movement Centre are delighted to be involved in the upcoming Aico Family Festival, and we can’t thank Aico enough for their kind support once again. Being a part of the organising committee has been great, seeing this event grow from a concept idea, to now being 2 months away. The staff at Aico have done a fantastic job in securing bands, a circus, some great local food and drink vendors, and we can’t wait to be involved in this awesome day. Having events like this really boosts awareness of both charities, and the great community work of Aico. Make sure you get your tickets and come and join us for a great day of family fun.”

Little Stars, an Aico charity of the year supported since 2021, provides families who need support with essential items to help keep babies and children clean, clothed, and safe. Launched in 2020, the charity has directly supported over 400 babies and children throughout Shropshire by providing the essentials they need. Through its Santa’s Little Stars Campaign, it has also supplied Christmas presents for 500 children in the county.

Little Stars Founder, Leanne Simcoe is really looking forward to the day, commenting “For Little Stars this is a huge moment in the charity’s history, having the support of Aico since 2021 has enabled us to grow beyond our expectations and for them to hold this event in aid of us is fantastic. Raising money in the charity sector is critical to ensure we can continue our vital services. Having this event not only to raise funds but also raise awareness of our work means so much to the Little Stars team and the families we support.”

Through their CSR initiative, Aico in the Community, Aico make supporting local causes a key priority. This latest collaboration will be a chance to not only raise funds for these two local charities in a fun family environment but also raise awareness of the vital work they do.

Community Liaison Lily Ellis is excited for the festival, adding “Organising this festival has been a great experience and it has been amazing to see all the local businesses within Shropshire support us to deliver a fantastic day for two amazing charities. I hope that local families can enjoy the day while raising some needed funds for Little Stars and The Movement Centre, buy your tickets now!”
