£20raised of £1,500 target by 2 supporters

    Weʼve raised £20 to Buy a set of 10 reading pens to help dyslexic students

    Funded on Friday, 9th February 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 nonprofit.

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


    I support dyslexic students on a day-to-day basis in school. While there is a lot of fabulous support going on in lessons, exams can be incredibly stressful.
    Some dyslexic students are entitled to a reader in exams but this can be tricky - some teenagers find it hard to be seen asking somebody to read for them. Added to this, having a person waiting for up to three hours to see if they NEED to read a word or phrase is a costly way to do things...and we are VERY short-staffed too!
    A set of reading pens would combat this. Students can be independent, staff can support other needs.
    PLEASE help me to make this happen! Schools just don't have the funds for extras like this, but the difference that they can make is incredible!
    Being cheeky - TWO sets would be A-MA-ZING...if any of you know of any corporate bids who might like to sponsor a set, I'd make sure people knew about it!

    Thank you for caring!
