Hello, we are Elin and Sophia aged 10 and 9! Thank you for visiting our Just Giving page!

We stayed silent for 12 hours each from 8.00am to 8.00pm on Saturday 6th February. We then broke our silence by hopping into a cold bath and screaming! 

We found it very hard, especially staying silent. If we are honest, we both cried a little (silently). 

We felt excited and nervous to get in the bath! We couldn't wait to scream...and we did, because the water was freezing! We agree that a bake sale might have been easier!

Now we have completed our mission we do we feel very happy that we didn't give up. We did it for Unique, and all of  the kind people that donated and supported us.

We want to thank all of you.  We cannot believe how much money we have raised because of your kindness!

Thank you for supporting us  and this wonderful charity Unique. Unique help families with children that have a rare chromosome disorder. A donation to Unique will help them to welcome families that need  support and information.

The reason Unique is important to us is because Elin's sister has a rare chromosome disorder. The disorder is so rare it doesn't have a name. Unique was the only place that could give us information about rare chromosome disorders, and help us to make contact with other families with children who had similar disorders.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you 

Elin and Sophia
