£375raised of £200 target by 24 supporters

    Weʼve raised £375 to help fund speech and language therapy for children and young adults with Down Syndrome.

    Worthing, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 28th September 2017

    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.


    As most of you know, I gave birth to a beautiful little girl in November last year. We found out the day after Roxy was born that she had Down Syndrome which at the time seemed scary as it was something we knew very little about. We now realise that there was nothing to fear and our amazing little Miss is doing just great. There are however, a few challenges to face along the way where Roxy needs a little extra help reaching some of her developmental milestones, one of them being speech.

    Roxy started having speech therapy through Symbol UK from the age of six months, as the earlier you can start, the better.

    Symbol UK has been in existence, on a not for profit basis, since 1998 and employs approximately 50 speech and language therapy staff working predominantly across the South East of England.

    Symbol's specialist speech and language therapy services have supported children, young people and adults with speech, language and communication needs in a variety of settings.

    I shall be running Bright 10 (Brighton & Hove 10 mile race) on Sunday 15th October 2017 in order to raise funds for Symbol UK. We would be extremely grateful for your support!

    Thank you.

      Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far! You are amazing!!! I have just been given a spot running for the Down's Syndrome Association in a half marathon in London next year so feel free to save your pennies for that instead. I'll set up a Just Giving page at the beginning of 2018. Xx
