Jack and Helen's Skydive for Dawn House School

Please join us in making a difference for Liam's school? Jack and Helen are jumping out of a plane for Dawn House School! Instead of using a company that deducts the cost of the jump to raise the money we are self funding these jumps so that the charity receives the maximum amount of money raised.

Weather permitting we are jumping on the 23rd August. We hope and pray for a clear day! oh yeah, and that the chute opens!!

Here's a bit about the School and why they need your help:

We're raising money in aid of Dawn House School part of ICAN; the children’s communication charity; Dawn House School is an outstanding day and residential specialist school for pupils aged between 5 and 19 years, who have severe and complex speech, language and communication difficulties with associated learning and/or behavioural difficulties. Communication is a fundamental life skill and good communication is key to ensuring children get the best start in life. Supporting speech and language development is at the heart of everything we do at Dawn House School. They give a voice to those that do not always have the words.

Dawn House integrates education and in-house therapy for all pupils in a highly specialist environment so that each of their pupils emerge as self-confident, independent individuals, able to manage their own learning and behaviour and equipped with the competencies, skills and strategies to take the next steps into further or higher education and the world of work.

Dawn House does not receive government funding for the upkeep of their buildings. It relies upon charitable donations, the 'Friends of Dawn House' fund raising efforts throughout the year and funding applications to help with the building repairs and also to purchase new equipment for the students.

As the building is circa 1970's it is in increasing need of maintenance including a new front door for their 'Chimes' building and larger equipment for their new Junior area. This past year they have had to put funds towards the repairs of two parts of the leaky school roof and repairs to the school pool.
