£210raised of £200 target by 14 supporters

Weʼre raising £200 to Buy equipment and text books for the Orchard Centre, which is a small school that deals with teens who cannot cope with mainstream school.

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.


My son has Aspergers and for 3 long years we have been struggling to deal with mainstream school and the inadequate training that staff have to cope with children who shut themselves off due to their surroundings. Luckily he was excepted to go to the Orchard Centre, this is a very small facility run and funded by West Mids council. When we went for our initial tour of the school we were shocked to see how little they had. Book's, computer software and hardware is all very basic. Because they have to keep a very high ratio of staff to pupils alot of their money goes on that leaving little for anything else.
So on the 29th May I did a little walk of 18 miles to show that I was willing to put in the time, effort and pain to raise money for these lovely people.
So if you could please show some appreciation for my blisters and loss of toe nails that would be awesome.
Thank you
