So why is this a thing?
After a session at Rollback Family skate, we recieved this humbling message from one of the young attendees via instagram...￼
We were taken back by this and asked Tia, who sent the sent the message, if she had spoken to Craig Jiggy and what made her get into skating in the first place?
In short she told us that she had been following us on instagram for a while, but when she say Craig Jiggy with our Rollback family, she was too shy to say anything.
She continued to tell us that she loved skating and it takes her mind off the bullying which she gets at school. Skating is her out let and has become her safe space.
Tia also asked us where and how could she get a Roll Jiggy edition of a Roller Stuff Skate Monster.
Now, we hate bullying and we're passionate about anti-bullying, whether it be in school or in the work place so we suggested this...
* That we help to raise funds for a Skate Monster(R) for Tia and designed by Tia.
* Tia and Craig Jiggy will both produce a piece of artwork to be given away
* And any extra money we raised will be donated to Tia's chossen charity the NSPCC, who offers professional advice in bullying and other areas of child welfare and abuse.
The Skate Monster(R) is hand crafted and will cost around £40 - P&P to make, but we wanted to make sure that NSPCC will get a decent donation for the work that the do.
A massive Thanks goes out to Tia for reaching out in the first place.
So what are you waiting for? Help us, help Tia and the NSPCC but giving what you can afford. Anything genuinely helps.
