£145raised of £200 target by 4 supporters

Weʼre raising £200 to continue to pay for Olis 1:1 support at after school club, by cycling a marathon over the Summer holidays.

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.

Story

Oli is 7 years old and is diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). He's an incredibly happy child with a passion for numbers and trains. The combination of his ASD and ADHD makes him very 'busy' and, as a result, he requires 1:1 attention in any group activities.

For the last 2 years he has attended an after school club one evening a week. He has had a 1:1 assistant for every session who (up until the end of March ) has been funded by the local council. Being autistic, he lives by his routine and since attending the club has developed important social skills, friendships, and a special bond with his 1:1. It is the only ‘out of school’ club he attends.

As some of you may know from our previous fundraising page, at the beginning of March of this year we were declined funding for any more assisted placements. As such, we decided to start up a justgiving page in the hope that we could continue to fund the 1:1 support privately. We were overwhelmed with the response and managed to raise an amazing £958, which will enable him to carry on attending until December ‘18.

1:1 support costs approximately £9.50 per hour. He attends for 2 and a half hours a week. ( NB We pay, and always have done, the £11 per session. We are trying to fund the additional cost for the 1:1 member of staff.)

We‘ve decided to use these Summer holidays as an oportunity to do some more fundraising to help pay for more of the 18/19 academice year. The challenge will be for both Oli and Millie to i individually cycle (or scoot) 26 miles over the duration of the school Summer holidays. With 2 weeks of that time taken up by holidays away, this gives them each 4 weeks to complete the challenge.

Any small amount that can be contributed towards the funding will be a big step in helping Oli continue his social development and, most importantly, allowing him to enjoy a club that he loves.

Much love!

The Johnsons x

    The most traumatic cycle to date! Millie woke up at 4am and didn’t go back to sleep, we had a long lazy morning but decided we needed to get some fresh air so went out as a family all on our bikes. Millie spent the whole time falling off her bike, shoelaces coming undone, cycling into lamp posts, cycling into me, having ‘lazy legs’ and generally cried/moaned the entire way around. Oli is now officially 1/2 way though the challenge, having done 13 Miles. Millie is on mile 12.... 2 weeks to go to complete. Wish me luck!

    Another 2 Miles completed by both of the children today. Oli is away next week, and Millie is away the week after, which means we’ve got some serious cycling to do. 16miles left for Oli and 17miles left for Millie. Wish us luck!
