“I also wanted to let you know that Joshua has been struggling with his self-esteem and his mental health massively recently. He was in crisis during the holidays. But after our visit to Menphys on Monday, he is feeling so much better in himself. The mini bikers have particularly shown him that he is capable of achieving something that seemed impossible and scary at first. There was no competition element to the sessions, which is normal in so much of his school life, and so he had no pressure on him from anywhere. He was able to just focus on his own progress and he saw he could do it, which has boosted his self-esteem and self-belief when he really needed it. Thank you so much for facilitating this opportunity!”
“Before we were giving this mini-bikers opportunity through Menphys, my son (5) couldn’t coordinate himself on a bike at all and now he can propel himself with his feet and balance with some control. He’s made amazing progress. I’m so proud of him.
Thank you we couldn’t have done this without your support”
“I’d like to thank Menphys for the opportunity to take part in mini bikers, it’s not something that George would normally be happy participating in but it’s the highlight of his week and he has grown in confidence so much after only a few sessions. Grateful to you all for the safe space you’ve created for the children!”

During the February Half Term Holiday, we ran the very first fully inclusive Basketball Camp at the Morningside Arena in Partnership with Leicester Riders.
The three-day camp enabled our Menphys Afterschool club members to attend a basketball camp alongside their siblings, friends and fellow basketball fanatics.
