Thomson Highlights Family Funds Discover Digital Summer Festival

Thomson Highlights Family Funds Discover Digital Summer Festival

Published date : 27 July, 2023

Gordon MP Richard Thomson is encouraging eligible parents to check out Family Fund’s ‘Discover Digital’ programme this summer.  

Designed for families with a disabled or seriously ill child, participants in the programme will learn wide-ranging new skills with their iPad, like how to make art, a video game, a podcast or a movie, while also making friends and having fun.  Family Fund has partnered with the RNIB and the charity will attend a number of sessions to support children and young people with a visual impairment.  

SNP MP Mr Thomson recently organised for Family Fund, a highly-respected charity which supports families with disabled or seriously ill children or young people, to visit Huntly to raise awareness of the support and assistance they can offer.  


Commenting on this latest initiative, Mr Thomson said:  

“This is another excellent initiative from Family Fund.    

“The ‘Discover Digital’ summer festival is open to all children and young people with additional needs but is also a festival for the whole family, with siblings very welcome too.  

“This is a great way to help develop new IT skills whilst at the same time having some fun.”
