A Sensory Garden

I'm getting married on December 14th.  I don't want  gifts. My flat is tiny and I don't have room. My nephew Leo is severely autistic and is receiving superb care at St Nicholas School in Croydon, a school that works tirelessly for children with learning difficulties, autism, Down syndrome and communication difficulties. Located in Purley, the pupils at St Nicks come from all parts of the London Borough of Croydon and beyond. The school is very popular with parents and has rapidly increased its population over the last few years, leading to a major rebuild.

Once the rebuild is finished the school is looking to use some of the reclaimed outdoor space to create a sensory garden which can be used to stimulate and inspire pupils through touch, smell, sight, taste and hearing, as well as providing a space for calming, learning and enjoyment.

So no sandwich toasters, crockery, or box sets of Mad Men for Olly and me, thanks. Please can we raise as much money as humanly possible to improve the lives of children with learning difficulties.
