Go Bananas 2017

Go Bananas is back!!

We are hoping to support these 10 local children of all ages pictured below and 1 organisation with your help this June.


All the children have different disabilities and are in great need of life changing equipment. Everything from trikes to help with independence and to strengthen leg muscles, sensory equipment to help relax a child with Autism, to an iPad which will help with communication skills.
