Playing In The Dark For Children With Rare Genetic Disorder

February 23, 2011

Children with a rare skin condition are getting help through a unique play scheme that allows them to play outside at night when most playgrounds and facilities are closed.

Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) is a genetic disorder that causes extreme sensitivity to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

The scheme is an opportunity for XP sufferers to get together with each other outside in a safe environment.

Facilities provided by the group include a special coating on playground and football pitch floodlights.
