    Story

    To have a toy like me makes you feel awesome, important and that you belong. We set up ToyLikeMe to shake up the toybox and shout out for inclusion ! We have done a lot with a little and a heap of goodwill but we are a teeny bit greedy and want to do more! Its not just about the money, its about the mindset and awareness. So in the name of fun, we are donning our lycra and will take on the 1k sensory challenge. I'm lucky I won't be doing it alone..... so for the first time i'll be walking, laughing, skipping jumping and having fun with the two little people that set me on this journey. My children, Fred and Eva. Join us, sponsor us, have fun with us!

      So excited to have HCOMM on board the crazy toylikeme bus. They have kindly agreed to sponsor our teeshirts and postcards. What makes this really special is that Gabi the company director is also a kick ass warrior senco mum. They are a local family doing a mind boggling job on the railways and they are backing us. So a big thank you to Hawthorne communications to Gabi and Gordon. We will wear our tees with pride. Pics to follow. So of they can back us. Why aren't you...... chuck us your change pretty please.

      Its raining outside but ive just wriiten two updates that have made me smile inside and out. One was share our stories with Parallel London and the other for the graduation booklet for the School of Social entrepreneurs course that has helped shaped my thoughts and structure on Toylikeme. A rare chance to reflect on how far we have come since Fred's diagnosis all those years ago that set us on a different path. We are really looking forward sharing our journey with you and all at Parallel London as we shout out for all our children !
