Maya’s Forest Fun Day Come and join us for a great family day in the Forest of Dean to celebrate the life of Maya. Please see the flyer for full details. Booking ahead needed if you require bicycles, tricycles etc.
On the 9th of March, Maya should have turned 17. Family and friends have decided to do some fund raising in Maya’s name to turn some of the pain from her loss into positive action.
They want to help other incredible children facing the challenge she overcame day after day.
At The Milestone School Maya had many friends and had a magical time with her peers learning and playing. Her favourite past time was to go swimming in the hydrotherapy pool. Maya shocked everybody one day in the pool. She didn’t like having the floating devices on her and so one day, her teacher took them off….and she floated! A little girl who couldn’t walk giggled as she floated all by herself in the warm waters of the school hydrotherapy pool. This was a time when she could fully relax, stretch out her limbs and have a huge amount of fun!
The day will be held in the Forest of Dean with the following activities:
Start at Pedal A Bike Away 11 – 12
– you can hire bikes here if you want to or bring your own.
We will then all walk, ride, wheelchair, and any other mode of transport to Cannop Ponds – 12 – 1pm
where the RSPB will do a nature & treasure hunt for the children & excited adults!
We then all return to Pedal A Bike Away for a barbecue and fun! – 1 – 3pm
We are hoping that some of Maya’s school friends will attend along with children from other schools in the county all of who will have use of the new facilities that we are fund raising for
EVERYONE can join in and have fun regardless of age, abilities or fitness.
The forestry commission will be providing parking, marshals & volunteers, the RSPB will host the nature & treasure hunt and the event has full public liability insurance so all will be safe.
