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.
As many of you are aware I am a teacher at a special needs school.
You may also be aware that any sort of special needs equipment is very expensive!!! Therefore I have decided to help and support our children by fundraising.
My aim over this year is to raise £3000 to buy a sensory integration swing system for Fairfleld school where I work.
I will try to achieve this by completing 3 challenges:
22nd April Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge (me and Will, my husband)
25th June Total Warrior (me and my bootcamp team)
August 10km run (me and Will, my husband)
I am very excited about 'sensory integration'. As I feel that all our students would benefit by gaining skills that i believe will improve their communication & independence
'SENSORY INTEGRATION sorts, orders & eventually puts all the sensory inputs together into whole brain function.' Jean Ayres 1979. What emerges from this process is increasingly complex behaviour, the adaptive response and engagement. This changes how the person then responds to changes in their own body, the environment & how they interact with it & others around them.
Sensory integration difficulties can influence self-regulation, movement, learning and interaction with others. SPD can interfere with skills that support performance, such as engagement and attention, as well as skills that enable the learning of new motor skills.

Please help me raise the funds to get this piece of equipment for the school.
Thank you for your support, all donations, big and small, will help xxx
