Weʼre raising £5,000 to support the dedicated work of the SEN department at Chiddingstone Primary School and any of the children that need additional support.

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.

Story

Three other intrepid (some would say foolish!) Chiddingstone School mummies have joined me to walk 55k of the epic South Coast Challenge on Saturday 25th August. Our aim is to raise as much money as we can to support a cause very dear to our hearts.

My son recently started at Chiddingstone school and is currently requiring some additional support as he settles in there. The provision and the care put into making him feel happy and settled have been truly impressive and very touching.

He is not alone as it is estimated that about 40% of ALL children will require additional support at some time in their school life. SEN covers such an incredibly huge umbrella of needs. A child may need support for a short time or as an ongoing provision throughout their school life. All schools are under enormous pressure now in regards to funding, especially in this area. Chiddingstone are working incredibly hard to ensure that they remain a fully inclusive school but in the present climate this is not easy.

Myself and my fabulous team henceforth known as the 'Chiddingstone Sole Sisters' would therefore like to raise money for the school to support them to continue to ensure that EVERY child is given the opportunity to blossom (whatever their challenge) and to make the most of all their strengths and abilities.

Any support to help us to achieve our goal would be wonderful

Thank you so much ❤️

All our best the Chiddingstone 'Sole Sisters' xxx

    Ok so things are getting pretty serious now as we build up our training in preparation for the walk in 7weeks....gulp! Walked 22k on Friday in the searing heat and with some devilishly challenging hills...... ice lollies helped! Thank you so so much to all those lovely people who have donated so far. ❤️ Your support means so much. However we still have a long way to go to make our target. If you can, please consider sponsoring us to help our SEN department and all the children with addition need to truly thrive and blossom at our school.
