    "Dear Paul,

    As the sessions are nearing the end, I would just like to say a massive thank you to yourself and all involved for the work you put in to providing such an amazing opportunity for our children. Cycling is the only club I can persuade my son to attend - it is such good exercise and a massive confidence boost. It is also one of the very few things he is able to do along side his sisters, who also have a brilliant time. Thanks again for enabling us to create happy and long lasting childhood memories. We're looking forward to September already!"

    "Thank you to you and all the Reaching Higher team for all your provision and support in recent years. It has been life enhancing and so memorable for my children who otherwise would not have had the same sporting opportunity."

    The Horsham Wheels for All sessions on Friday afternoon are fantastic. My daughter loves the stress free tempo of the session where she can chose her own cycle, try to different ones (the range of cycles to borrow is great), she can go at her own speed and ask for help at anytime from the many knowledgeable helpers. Please keep these sessions going; its a wonderful opportunity for good exercise because cycling round the level track is achievable for her, she's making steps to independence cycling on her own and increasing her well being and self esteem. She wants to learn to cycle on a two-wheeled bicycle next. We'd love these sessions to continue, with more bicycles and helpers on hand to give guidance. Thank you!

    Thank you for the positive comments about the Horsham Wheels For All Inclusive Cycling sessions that your daughter has been attending. The pilot programme of sessions has now finished but we are running one more session before Christmas on Friday 4th November at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre and will then be looking to restart them again next March when the weather improves.

    My son has been doing weekly Rebound Therapy for about a year now. It is one of the highlights of his week and he always looks forward to his session. The sessions are well run and they tailor each childs' turn on the trampoline specifically to their needs and ability. My son has Autism and is a massive "sensory seeker" and can be very hyper especially after school. After an hour of Rebound he is suitably calm for the rest of the evening!
