Bucket Swing ‘first in the region' project to help physically disabled kids to swing in their local parks.


My name is Cyrus and I am fundraising for special swings to help disabled children like me swing in our local park.

I am 13 and have cerebral palsy and cannot sit up by myself. I need a special bucket seat swing to help me sit up.

I am raising money for special swings to be put up at Tawhai Raunui Play Area in Woodridge so disabled kids like me can swing and play. They are shaped like bucket seats and can fit kids and adults.

This park will be the first in Wellington to include this kind of swings. Wellington City Council are also helping me with this project but I need some more money.

There are no swings of this style that physically disabled kids that cannot sit up can use to swing by themselves in any parks in Wellington.

There are other kids at my school and in Woodridge and Newlands areas with physical disabilities and nowhere for us to swing.

Please help to support my project. I am donating some of my own money for this project too. Thank you 🙏

Use of funds

All money raised will go towards paying for the swings and the installation costs.

Any money raised above the target will go towards hosting the local community to an opening celebration and BBQ at the park.

If the target is not reached, we will extend.
