South West

Variety South West is a dedicated committee and meets once a month at the Royal Marriott, Bristol.

The Bristol and the South West Regional Committee comprises of a group of incredible volunteers who are dedicated to helping our local sick, disabled and disadvantaged children.

We currently meet during the evening of the first Wednesday of each month, unless this falls on a bank holiday, to discuss and arrange fundraising events. All proceeds from these events are used to provide  children with specialised wheelchairs, including sports wheelchairs, specially designed equipment, wet rooms etc.

News from one of our Beneficiaries

Stanley is enjoying his new found freedom in his Tiny Trax wheelchair, funded by Variety. He is able to go fast and keep up with his friends and siblings, he can play tag and actually catch people. He is now an independent 6 year old, getting up to mischief like all 6 year old should.

The biggest change for us all and nicest of all, is that Stanley is now able to hold hands. It’s his new favourite thing to do, ours too!
