Have you got a head for heights? On Saturday 9th September we are holding our first ever indoor climbing challenge at Rope Race Climbing Centre.

Participants will be able to climb the equivalent height of Manchester’s Beetham Tower in the comfort of the indoor climbing centre. Children are more than welcome to take part in the event but the minimum age restriction is 6 years old.

Beetham Tower is one of the UK’s highest buildings at an amazing 551ft/168m and 47 floors high. Once registered you
will be required to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship which will include your registration fee for the event. This means that essentially you will get to climb for free!

The climbing challenge is another exciting event to mark Independent Options’ 40th anniversary, and a superb opportunity to push yourself to the limit while raising much-needed funds to help us continue the work we do for the next 40 years!

To get involved, or for more information, get in touch! Email us at fundraising@independentoptions.org.uk or call 0161 456 6502

Isla's Story

Isla is three and a half years old and has been coming to the Children and Family Centre for around two years with her family.

At first Isla had no diagnosis, but it was clear to her parents that something was different from an early age as she had a short attention span and would have regular crises if other children came near her. Her speech was also delayed and she didn’t speak or make any verbal noises until the age of three.

By coming to The Centre, play around other children was normalised for Isla as she began to get used to other children being around and she loves coming to The Centre now. She enjoys the freedom to play in the garden or inside with the toys and crafts. Isla responds well to the staff and volunteers at The Centre and is confident to ask for help.

“Isla has speech and language delay but one of the first words Isla spoke was when she shouted “Messy Play!”, so we knew then how vital it was for her to come here.”
