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.
