We are now fundraising for our next MediCinema installation in Wales. This MediCinema is unique as it will allow children with disabilities to access and go to a cinema in an environment that can accommodate them and bring them some normality and entertainment. This MediCinema will have spaces for 18 wheelchairs due to the number of children who are confined to their wheelchairs. The Centre will house a range of facilities and services, under one roof for children from South Wales with disabilities – children with Asperger’s syndrome, spinal impairment, Cystic fibrosis, Down’s syndrome and those who are mentally impaired. MediCinema at the South Gwent Children’s Centre will be the latest state of the art cinema with digital and 3D projection and Surround Sound.
