We’re raising Â£500 to help take amputees out for a day because to help with motivation after amputation.
Who are AIM?
AIM is a Community Interest Company (non-profit organisation), whose aims and objectives are to reinvest surplus funds to create opportunities for amputees, providing assistance towards further education, employment, sports and hobbies.
They use first hand experience of Amputation, Inspiration, Motivation and Determination to help enhance and develop our community, encouraging and supporting amputees to develop skills and confidence, providing team building workshops and inspirational talks to schools, colleges and hospitals.
Why are we doing this?
AIM help Amputees who often feel isolated from their local Communities after Amputation, due to their physical disability. AIM help a variety of people from very young children to older people. We want to help get Amputees and their carers together so that they can all be empowered to build and maintain an active and social lifestyle.
How will the money be spent?
The money will be spent on a day out which will help build a support network between old and new Amputees and their carers and families, which will result in them supporting each other through the difficult times. These days out are vital to AIM’s users who share their experiences in AIM’s Bi-monthly newsletters so that others can read of them and hopefully join in on the next one. In the past we have spent a day at Challenge for Change were Amputees work together around an assault course.
