    Story

    Sam, Jazmine & Gwilym (left to right in photo) are our very own delightful trio of trouble! We are 3 Mum's, (Hayley, Claire & Kristin), who on becoming firm friends due to these 3, have joined allegiances to raise funds to help our children learn to talk. Something so basic & we take for granted! Specialist Speech and Language Therapy is needed for this very basic communication skill due to low tone effecting their ability to make the right sounds & then co-ordinate them to make speech. Speech clarity is another issue & reason this intervention is needed. NHS resources are extremely limited & specialist intervention to promote their communication, language & understanding is very expensive. A year of private Speech & Language Therapy for the 3 of them is over £8000. Please help us raise money to help this trio to talk our socks off & to give them a good start with this much needed early intervention.

      An incredible £2880 raised from 2nd Nov coffee morning & donations since, has SMASHED our target 🎉 In under 3 months your generosity & support has overwhelmed us! With the most heartfelt “THANK YOU”the 3 of us Mums can say as our trio start speech & language therapy 😊 Now we want to help others in the same situation. With more fundraising & money coming in we are looking to register as a Charity fundraising for education & early intervention therapy. On Children in Need it is apt to say “thank you for helping these 3 children in need” ❤️💜💛
