When the opportunity arose to provide sensory support at the Special Olympics GB National Games we couldn’t wait to be involved. Our friends at Sparkle Sheffield arranged for us to bring the Sensory Bus to the Athletes’ Village situated at The Edge in Sheffield.
Why are Rompa Supporting the Special Olympics?
Rompa are providing a Snoezelen® sensory space for athletes who may become anxious or need to relax and manage their sensory needs. We will be supporting the Special Olympics all week until mid afternoon Friday.
Rompa sell Snoezelen® Multi-Sensory Environments and products throughout the UK. These products are often used to help people with Autism and Learning Difficulties. We thought it would be great opportunity to give something back and support the Athletes throughout the week.
As the athletes were arriving yesterday we had a lot of people take an interest in the bus, some of whom explained to us how sensory products such as the Infinity Panel and Snoezelen® Bubble Tube Sensory Corner Kit help them to relax.
