Weʼre raising £3,000 to fund a toilet for Villa Real P1CE and give young people with disabilities a social life!
- Durham, UK
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.
Ava was born a gorgeous little girl with no problems; a normal girl, but 3 days later developed hypoglycaemia which has resulted in a life of extra challenges due to profound disabilities. She is now 7 years old and attends Villa Real School in Consett, Co. Durham. In the last term she has started to use a special toilet with great success; however, there is only one of these toilets for the whole class, meaning less opportunity to go when needed. We want to change this and give more children the chance to be successful on the loo.
Ava has a friend called Sophie who has a learning disability and autism. Sophie has gone through the school system having hardly been to any parties and feeling like she didn't fit it. Integrated children have changed this for her and others like her. Volunteers take these young people out as a group where they can make friends and feel like they belong. Wet and Wild, Cinema, meals out. These are all things we take for granted and so wish to make it normal for these children to get a chance to socialise too.
On the 22nd September we will walk up Ben Nevis to raise funds to reach our goals for Ava, Sophie and children like them. Please give generously and help spur us up that mountain.
