    Weʼve raised £125 to To raise funds for Our Pride, This is a parent lead support group for children with additional needs and their families

    Funded on Saturday, 31st July 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    When my daughter was born in 2011 she was born with a little something special. She had an extra chromosome t21more commonly know as Down Syndrome. Even though we had little knowledge of the syndrome we searched for information. I hoped I would find other families who had a child with additional needs that I could chat with and ask lots of questions. But I couldn't find any group in my local area.

    With the help of our local sure start centre I set up my own group. Hoping that in time I would be able to offer my own experiences to newly diagnosed families.

    As the years have gone by we have grown from strength to strength. Not just providing support but making life long friends along the way, not just for our unique children but their siblings and parents too.

    Raising this money will provide Our Pride with the funds to be able to take our children and their families on amazing days out. Making fabulous memories.

    I also would like to create a going home pack to distribute in the local hospitals for parents with a query diagnosis. To provide much needed advice and information.

    I found when leaving the hospital I felt very alone and not sure we're to turn. Hopefully these packs will help new parents to have a look at the amazing journey they are about to take.

      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 nonprofit.

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

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
