    Weʼve raised £1,703 to help fund a specialist trike for Emelia

    Farnborough, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 16th October 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    At the end of September, the fantastic staff of St Mark’s will be swimming the equivalent distance of the ‘Straits of Gibraltar’ to raise funds for one of their pupils, Emelia, who was born with arthrogryposis. This is a lifelong condition which causes stiffness of the knees and feet, making it impossible for Emelia to ride a shop bought trike. After hearing the disappointing news of the refusal of grant funding for a specially adapted trike, the staff were horrified and started to hatch a plan! Please support the staff in raising the funds so that Emelia is provided with the same opportunities as her peers - to ride a trike! This trike would not only enable Emelia to take part in riding with her friends and family but also provide a much needed tool for strengthening her legs.
    We would be incredibly grateful for both your support and that of the community so please pass this plea on to as many of your family and friends as possible - every little helps!
    Now, out with our swimming costumes!

      A heartfelt thank you from all the staff at St Mark’s CE Primary School for your support, whether in thought, prayer or through donation. We did it! Not only did we raise more funds than we ever imagined we could, we achieved our swimming target that we had only dreamt of! Collectively, through empowering team spirit, we swam over 14.5km and were cheered on and looked after by our fantastic LSA’s, who kept us hydrated, kept our blood sugar levels up with sweets and provided endless encouragement to the team! Thank you!
