New Mobile Sensory Bus

Ruby’s Fund are delighted to share our exciting news with you that we now have a mobile sensory bus! It has been 8 months in the planning! 

The idea came from our families who told us that sometimes they couldn’t always get to see us at the centre due to the needs of their child. 

We didn’t want them to miss out on the support, services and facilities that we offer at Ruby’s Fund and the idea of a mobile sensory room seemed like the ideal solution. 

We worked with The Mark Benevolent Fund to apply for funding to provide a mobile sensory bus so we could take our services and facilities out into the community and to our families.

Darren Coleman-Heald, Charites Manager of the Mark Benevolent Fund, said: “The Mark Benevolent Fund is the official charity of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons, the third largest branch of Freemasonry. We are delighted to have joined forces with Ruby’s Fund in this all-important mobile sensory room project. It reaches deep into the heart of the community, giving enjoyment and stimulation to children with additional needs. Our 36,000 members will be pleased to know that their donations are being used wisely by helping those in need.”

Alison Parr, Founder of Ruby’s Fund said “throughout August we aim to visit all of the children who usually have short breaks with us at our sensory centre. As the premises is not yet able to open, the team at Ruby’s Fund hope that a visit from our staff in the mobile sensory bus will cheer up not only the children but the whole family too”

The bus will be part of our outreach and short breaks services within Cheshire East. For more information please contact
