£1,246raised of £1,000 target by 38 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,246 to help James & Josh turn their garden into a sensory sanctuary and purchase some sensory aids to help with communication & therapies.

    Funded on Tuesday, 17th January 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    James & Josh are young adults who live in Supported Living with a team of dedicated carers, they are both profoundly disabled and need 24/7 care to help them live their life. Their days consist of much therapy and sensory work and a few items of equipment would make a huge difference to their lives and well being.

    James & Josh will be raising funds to buy some specialist sensory equipment for their home & garden.

    They would love a laptop to use with communication aids, a sensory wall to aid with physiotherapy, sensory needs and provide visual stimulation.

    We would love to make over their garden adding a hot tub to help relieve pains & aches. Add lighting and chimes to create a sensory sanctuary.

    James & Josh will be helping their fundraising efforts by making Christmas cards to sell, hosting events and selling produce from their garden and chickens.

    If you are at a loss what to buy them for Christmas why not donate to their cause, or pledge a few hours work in their garden or with DIY projects, every little makes a huge difference to them.

    Thank you x

      A huge thank you to those that have donated already and for the offers of help, Christmas cards made by James are on sale now at £3.50 per pack. We have a rep coming to meet us to look at ideas and give us some costings for a sensory & therapy wall, so will keep you updated. This is the boys first Christmas in their new home so their care team will soon be starting to think about decorations, we'd like to make it extra special after a very unsettling year for them so watch this space.
