Sensory Garden for Fatima

Our Lady of Fatima Special School  are on a mission to build a Sensory Garden for our students.  
Our special needs assistant Lorraine Mc Mahon and  fellow runner Anthony Kennelly will run 5 marathons in 5 consecutive days during Christmas Week December 20th-24th and our Sna Chris Colfer will complete the 12 Runs of Christmas of varied distances, all to raise funds for this cause.

The vision we have for our garden will include a sheltered pergola,  seating, many different features, surfaces, objects and plants that stimulate the senses through touch, sight, smell, taste and sound. A beautiful space that will be both calming and therapeutic,  reducing their anxiety levels and benefitting our students with complex needs, sensory impairments and Autism.

This is a huge undertaking and we hope you can donate to this much needed cause.  Please help our goal and we thank you so much for your generosity. 

Below are some ideas of what we hope to achieve.
