Thank you for taking the time to visit this page on JustGiving!!
This page is fundraising for the Royal School for the Blind in Liverpool. First, I would like to tell you a bit about the Charity.
The Royal School for the Blind in Liverpool is a school and independent charity that caters to students age 2-19 with visual impairment, and other sensory, physical or behavioral disabilities. The School’s mission statement from their site reads: “The Royal School for the Blind strives to promote students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development within an environment of mutual respect and sensitivity. The School provides education of the highest quality whilst valuing all pupils and staff as individuals, worthy of dignity and respect. Royal School for the Blind takes pride in its happy, caring and stimulating environment."
The school is always improving and doing neat things for their pupils, and I encourage you all to check out what they’re up to on their website or twitter!
I think it would be great if we could raise some money to help the Royal School for the Blind keep doing the amazing work they’re doing! The goal says £300, but I would like to try to go beyond that!
I’m now going to talk a little bit about why I have started this fundraiser.
As we all know, Brian Jacques passed away on February 5th, 2011. Every year since then, every Redwall fan I know takes some time to share with us how Mr. Jacques and his books have impacted them. Stories about how he and his writing inspired them, or helped them through the hard times, helped shape who they are, and all kinds of positive things.
What better way to honor the spirit of Redwall and the memory of the man who inspired so many of us than by working to help make a positive impact in the lives of others? The Royal School for the Blind was selected as our charity of choice due to the fact that it is in Liverpool, Mr. Jacques’ hometown, as well as the fact that the first Redwall book was written for the children there when Mr. Jacques worked as a truck driver!
This donation event will end on July15th. This year, I started it on June 15th, the day of Mr. Jacques's Birthday.
Thank you all again for taking the time to read this page, and a double thank you to anyone who donates!!
