Last year 20 deserving families were afforded the opportunity (with the help of Child Occupational Therapy Centre, Motivate Kids) to ride the London Bus during the Credit Union Christmas Pageant. In some capacity, each family had a child challenged by Autism and/or Cerebral Palsy and had found attending the pageant in prior years to be challenging, some simply had never been before.
Children with walking aids or those that do not have the capacity to walk for long stretches cannot experience the magic that happens each Christmas Pageant – an event that most families take for granted.
The privacy, comfort and convenience the London Bus can offer a child with mobility or over sensory issues allows these families to give their children the same experience that every child who grows up in Adelaide gets to experience – but even better!!
“We’ve stayed away from events like this over the years because my son is on the autism spectrum and it’s often difficult to get to these things. Not many people actually understand. This was the first time he’d been to the pageant and it’s so great that we had the opportunity to participate this year. He was so excited and the opportunity to get up close to everything was so great. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m so glad that he got to experience it.”

This year, Living Without Limits is seeking to engage businesses and individuals who are willing to gift another 20 deserving families with a seat on the London Bus. A sponsorship donation of only $1,000 affords a parent and their child to ride the London Bus during the 2018 Credit Union Christmas Pageant.
Donations are tax deductible and go towards supporting additional initiatives that assist families challenged by Autism and Cerebral Palsy.
Businesses will have their logos printed on the seats they have sponsored & will receive a certificate of appreciation for their kind donation.
