Happy birthday to us!
We have been giving children with special needs in our community the best start in life for 50 incredible years.
50 years may have passed yet our service remains as vital as ever. Our waiting list continues to grow and children with disabilities still have no statutory support under school age.
It costs £250,000 to deliver our life-changing service each year. We receive no government funding and are entirely dependent upon fundraising and the generous help of our local community, businesses and family of supporters.
Please help us. Take on our 50 at 50 Fundraising Challenge and help children with special needs get the best start in life!
If you need ideas and inspiration – why not get sponsored to experience one of the challenges our children can face on a daily basis?……
50 minutes silence –
to experience what it is like for a child who cannot communicate verbally
50 minutes in earmuffs and a blindfold –
to experience what it is like for a child who is deaf-blind
Listen to the radio for an hour, stop what you are doing every time you hear the word “next” –
to experience what it is like for the parent of a child who experiences seizures
Wear boxing gloves or oven gloves for an hour –
to experience what it is like for a child with poor fine motor skills
