Our amazing supporters completed a Woodbridge to Edinburgh Charity bike ride covering a 450 mile journey over 5 days, a real challenge!
We are thrilled to have been supported by the Lord’s Taverners in 2017 who gave us a grant to install some fantastic play equipment into The ILS garden. The project was completed in the summer term of 2018, and our pupils are delighted with the transformation!
In October 2018, we were honoured to welcome Sir Michael Parkinson and representatives of the Lord’s Taverners to The ILS, to see first hand how we utilised the grant to create an exciting outdoor space for our pupils. Staff and pupils alike truly appreciated the visit, and the opportunity to thank our supporters personally.information on this project.
Our local NISA store on York Way has very generously made The Bridge their very first nomination in the groups national charity scheme! That’s £1000 toward resources for our children. Making a Difference Locally [MADL] is a charity launched to help independently run, local Nisa stores add value to their communities by allowing them to nominate charities or good causes that are local to them.
The charity helps Nisa stores raise money through the sale of certain products in-store, including all of Nisa’s own-label Heritage range. Every time an item included in the scheme is purchased (look out for the MADL logo), a proportion of the price is added to the store’s MADL fund and this is then donated to good causes in that store’s local area. THANK YOU so much to store owner, Haroon and Store Manager, Sophia for truly Making a Difference.
The Bridge Secondary School has recently been in receipt of a traverse wall for their playdeck, thanks to a successful grant application to the Cloudesley Foundation.
Recreational space within our purpose built school buildings are extremely limited, whilst a large number of our young people are tremendously energetic. They require a range of physical outlets to support their sensory, health and well-being needs.
Climbing supports child development in a number of ways and without the assistance and generous support of the Cloudesley Foundation, our young people would not now be cherishing a new safe space in which they challenge themselves; play both alone and collaboratively; grow, exercise and develop their movement and well being.

“We live in a time of significant advances in our understanding of therapies, education techniques and technology to help children and young people with autism, severe learning difficulties (SLD) and profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). Unfortunately, these are costly. Our fundraising aims to give our students the best chance in life and to fulfil their true potential through a range of innovative projects. Please help us to achieve this by supporting our work and helping us to raise £1m over the next 2 years.”
