£150raised of £60 target by 10 supporters

    Funded on Friday, 19th October 2018

    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.


    Harri's school will not pay for him to travel across London by taxi, for a class trip. The journey which is not accessible by tube/overground means he will have to do the journey by bus and walking, which will take 2 hours each way. This journey will take his classmates an hour each way. They have made no attempt to provide us with support or to seek alternatives, including raising the money. By us asking for a small donation is wonderful, but it is mainly to highlight the struggles SEN children have accessing day-to-day life at school. Please share this.

      I am amazed that so many donated, so quickly! £60 is the amount it would cost for a pre-booked accessible taxi for the day. It's not a lot £60 to some, but for many families it would be impossible. Understanding the cuts and choices schools are making, are now impacting children with special needs. I hope I have raised some awareness and expressed the lack of inclusion in schools. I have had a great response from the community and I will hopefully be able to spread the money raised so far to other local SEN/disability children near by.
