Aoife’s Sensory Bus to visit Scotstoun for Dragons match
Glasgow Warriors are pleased to be welcoming Aoife’s Sensory Bus to Scotstoun Stadium on Saturday (1 April) and are offering the service to any families and young people who can take advantage of the sensory space provided.
This is the first time the bus, operated by a family-run charity in Ayrshire, will be on site.
It will be available for families and young people who could benefit from stepping away from the noise and bright lights of game day. Anyone interested in finding out more about sensory spaces generally can by speaking to the volunteers who will be on hand at the bus.
The bus will be situated inside the South West entrance to the stadium. It will be open from 4pm when gates open and will remain open throughout the game.
Paramedic Michael Kidd, set up Aoife’s Sensory Bus in 2020. The bus provides an invaluable sensory service in Ayrshire, particularly in rural locations. The charity’s website states the purpose of the bus is “to target young people across Ayrshire who require a sensory integrated approach to improve their wellbeing and assist their educational targets in a creative and meaningful way”.
Michael set up the charity after the death of his six-year-old daughter. She had benefited from sensory spaces through her cancer treatment.
