Weʼve raised £565 to Willow House at The Children's Trust
- Funded on Sunday, 2nd September 2018
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.
On Saturday 23rd June I am taking part in a skydive to raise money for The Children's Trust. I have been working at the TCT since October and before I leave to begin my nursing degree in September I wanted to do something special in particualr for Willow the house I work on. Willow has 8 young people as residents for long term care and they also attend The Children's Trust school. It is our job to give them the best quality of life possible.
About TCT- The Children's Trust is the UK's leading charity for children with brain injury.The ambition is for all children with brain injury and neurodisability to have the opportunity to live the best life possible. Every year over 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness (figure drawn from NHS England). This is known as acquired brain injury.
Many children make a good recovery, but thousands have to live with ongoing, long-term difficulties. Some children are left with severe physical difficulties or learning difficulties. Some children experience more subtle, 'hidden' difficulties which nevertheless have a big impact on their lives.
Our rehabilitation, community and online services are there to support all children with acquired brain injury and their families.
Thousands more children are born with brain injuries or develop severe disabilities as a result of a degenerative condition. Our medical services and special school give children with the most complex disabilities and health needs the chance to live their lives to the full.
