Dorothy's head shave for Stewarts Special School

Donation protected
My son Niall has Down Syndrome and Autism. He will never be able to speak or care for himself, and needs full time 1-1 care. Thanks mainly to Niall's special school, he and all of our family can have a pretty normal life.

Stewarts School in Palmerstown cares for 130 children like Niall, all with complex learning disabilities and many with significant medical and physical problems. We are building a new school this year, but we have to raise €200,000 for playground equipment. 

Our kids really need stimulation, they have to learn how to play, and they need lots of breaks from the classroom. For health and safety reasons they can't leave the school premises. We really really need to buy this equipment and install it during the building phase this year. 

Stewarts school has been so good to my family. Please sponsor my head shave and share this page with others. Our children have no voice of their own - please help us. Thank you so much.
