Weʼre raising £2,800 to Help Jayden get his Autism Assistance dog, Oliver

- 40 days to go
We are fundraising to raise money which will go towards the cost of training an Autism Assistance dog for Jayden, the main cost for this is £3,000 and together we hope we will reach close to that amount. (The total to raise has been lowered to £2,800 as Jaydens cousins raised £200 running the mini Great North Run)
Jaydens family have been very lucky in finding a dog which will be able to be trained to meet Jaydens needs and also a dog that has instantly created a bond with him - they now just need your support to fund it.
Jayden is 6 years old and is diagnosed with Autism and ADHD, he has very complex needs and Oliver (the assistance dog which has been matched to Jayden) will be specially trained to support, comfort and calm him in times of need and distress. Oliver will also become Jaydens best friend and companion.
Oliver has been matched to Jayden from a company called Appaws for Autism, they are a wonderful company and are sure that Oliver will be the perfect dog for Jayden, once he has completed his training. They believe that Oliver will provide a secure, comforting, safe and non-judgemental environment for Jayden he will also be specially trained to calm, stop, prevent, nurture, comfort, tolerate and love Jayden.
We hope that Oliver will support Jayden in times of crisis and anxiety to help him to lead a safer, more independent life which we know he is capable of achieving.
Fifteen of Jaydens loved ones are hoping to raise money by completing the Zip wire challenge - this is a 230m long zip wire travelling over the River Tyne, they will be putting all sponsors towards gettilg Oliver for Jayden.
We thank you for any donation big or small, every penny counts and will go towards helping Jayden get Oliver.
