Lions, tigers and bears ….

  • Oh my! We are so impressed with our member Nicola Havenhand, who raised an amazing £730 by organising a 15-mile walk and an Easter party for kids with additional needs.

    During the event, six children and nine adults completed five laps of Rother Valley Country park, all dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz. One of the participants, Jane, single-handedly raised over £400!

    The walk was followed by an Easter party for children with additional needs, featuring a fantastic entertainer, face painting, a raffle and a range of art and craft activities.

    Nicola said: “All the children had a wonderful time, and it was a joy and a pleasure to meet the families who attended the event. I am so grateful to all my friends and family who worked tirelessly behind the scenes – I couldn’t have done it without them!”

    We used the funds raised by Nicola to offer free places on our Makaton courses for families in receipt of means-tested benefits.
