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.

Violet has Sensory Processing Disorder, a condition in which the brain has trouble receiving and responding to information which comes in through the senses. This means that simple everyday tasks such as walking along a street, looking at a book or being in a shop can result in a sensory overload which is extremely overwhelming and distressing for Violet. Needless to say life isnt easy for our little girl.
Violets progress over the last 5 years has been fantastic and we continued to see improvements in her communication and social interaction. Violet is now 10 and attends The Colombus School, a carefully selected special needs school in Chelmsford.
Violet is working under a specialist curriculum and her teachers have been pleased with her progress so far. Monies raised from this event will help fund an individual sensory plan with the help of a sensory specialist from Beanstalk Childrens Therapy Centre who will attend Violets school.
The funds will also provide a sensory specialist to attend Violets School and train the teachers and TA's in sensory skills and techniques to support all the children at the school.
We will hopefully reach the target and also be able to provide a sensory specialist to attend 3 times a week to Violets class for a year.
Violet may not be able to write a sentence or read a book but she is loving, bright and determined little girl. Violet can now tell you her name and she is continuing to develop and learn new skills everyday.
The sensory work which Violet has completed over the last year has been a massive game changer and really making a massive improvement to her life and wellbeing.
Thank you all for taking part, sponsoring and supporting Violet and helping make a huge difference to her life.
Alex, Toni, Laurie & Violet
