Children with SEN raising £2400 in 24hrs for PPE

Our Vision
We are proud parents of our children with Special Needs. Our children have received care from the NHS since the beginning of their lives and now during a global pandemic they are giving back to our NHS. Our children are showing their appreciation for our national heroes by setting themselves individual challenges during Lockdown and asking for donations which will support non-profit organisations and individuals who are producing PPE for our care and medical workers.

Currently PPE is globally in high demand so we want to ensure that our money supports the individuals and organisations in the UK who are producing PPE against hospital government standards and distributing immediately to hospitals and care sectors. This is why we want to raise money instantly as every penny and every second can save a life and we want to protect our staff!

Our incredible children are able to give so much to the world we live in but they do not always have the opportunities to shine so us parents have created a platform for them to shine, inspire and contribute to a service that will always play a huge part in their lives.
Please show appreciation for our children’s individual challenges during lockdown by donating money which will directly support our chosen organisations who are currently in need of funding in order to continue their production and distribution of PPE to the NHS and Care sector. There will be regular updates every time money is transferred to a  PPE production line in order to reassure you that your money has made a difference.

YOU CAN DONATE ANONYMOUSLY AND EVEN IF YOU DONATE A FEW PENCE, EVERY PENNY COUNTS. THANK YOU❤️

SOME OF THE CHILDREN’S LOCKDOWN CHALLENGES SO FAR

Nicole will be maintaining her balance whilst bouncing on a ball 20 times without falling off which will be really challenging but she can do it! Chelsea finds it incredibly difficult to engage in tasks but we believe she can take part in a baking session despite all of her sensory issues. Go girls!
