Check out Ellie Day grants

Ellie loved going to theme parks,

Ellie wanted to help children whose families face challenges to accessing the fun, and wanted to help.

The Ellie Thornton Foundation gives Ellie Day grants in her name.

Ellie days grants

An open application scheme for families with barriers to Family Days Out by having a child/children with additional needs.

We provide funds to overcome some of the challenges.

Our priority is on enabling the siblings of children with additional needs to experience family days out.

This initiative was created to meet Ellie’s ambition to help other children enjoy family days out, especially the brothers and sisters of children with additional needs.   Ellie was adamant that we need to help all children access the fun. The fund is set up in her name and in her spirit of fun and adventure.
