Swings & Smiles Supports Multi Award-Winning Charity Event

A Berkshire disability charity has been announced as a partner for multi award-winning charity event Parallel Windsor.

Swings & Smiles in Thatcham will be partnering with Parallel to support its annual fully-accessible event on July 7 in Windsor Great Park - designed to be a ‘Festival of Inclusivity’ for people of all ages and abilities to challenge themselves and get active.

Swings & Smiles provides accessible play spaces for disabled children as well as respite care and support for their families.

As a charity partner, Swings & Smiles will be setting up a sensory space at Parallel Windsor with accessible play equipment to engage children, helping them to explore their senses through play in a safe environment.

“We’re incredibly proud to be an event partner for Parallel Windsor,” said CEO of Swings & Smiles Rhonda Nicklin.


“It’s a charity which aligns with our own values and mission to create a fully inclusive society where people of all abilities can thrive and flourish.” 



Parallel Windsor aims to challenge everyone to get moving by taking part in a range of multiple running, walking, and pushing distances, including 100m, 1K, 5K and 10K. 


It also features the SuperSensory 1k, supporting neurodiverse people with profound and multiple learning disabilities to exercise their senses over a series of challenges, such as responding to sound, taste, and touch.

“I could not be happier to welcome Swings & Smiles and their families to Parallel Windsor,” said Andrew Douglass, Founder of Parallel.

"I have so much admiration for the way this incredible team combines its love and passion for all the children it supports with so many innovative campaigns that generate such a positive force within the communities they serve.”
