    Hi, I am Toby and I'm doing the 6 hour challenge to raise money for Stony Dean School and Animal Antiks. This is a challenge were I dance non stop for 6 hours, the challenge is over when the 6 hours is up. I've made a 6 hour timer and a playlist of lots of different artists to keep me excited and keep me awake.
    Thank you.

    Toby is 16 and has high functioning autism and attends Stony Dean, a specialist SEN College who's designation is for Communication and Interaction. Find out more at stonydean.bucks.sch.uk.

    He is also raising money for Animal Antiks (Stoke Mandeville, Bucks) which is a charity that uses animals to create an environment which is non-judgemental, engaging, safe and provides opportunities for our young people to achieve and learn new skills. They are having to relocate so they are raising money for this and to continue their good work. Find out more at www.animalantiks.co.uk

    Toby wanted to set himself a challenge and raise some money for some good causes. He wrote to his headteacher and he agreed that Toby could dance throughout the school day (date tbc, but school be before Christmas). He has produced his sponsor form and spoken about his challenge to each of the year assemblies to raise awareness and hopefully gain some sponsors. As well as raising money for the school Toby chose Animal Antiks as he has attended their farm, along with his sister and really enjoyed his time there and wanted to help them fundraise to support their relocation.

      Yay - he's done it!! Just finished his six hour challenge and didn't take a break!! Tired (and sweaty!) but extremely proud of his achievement. We hope he has raised over £500 once he collects all the sponsors on his sheet.
