Story

I wanted to let you know I am running the London Marathon on the 21st April 2024 for the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity with the hope you may support me.

I have chosen Helen Arkell to say thank you for all the support they gave me whilst I was at school and university. The Helen Arkell Trust not only directly support people with dyslexia, but have an important role in training of dyslexia specialist teachers and support staff. I have severe dyslexia but with help of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity I was able to learn important techniques to over come the worst of my difficulties and gain the confidence to go on to further education. I still use these skills almost every day. As well as going to classes at the centre most of my learning support teaches were trained by Helen Arkell.

I want to raise awareness for this charity and allow them to give hope to parents and children who due to dyslexia can sometimes feel hopeless. The support from the Helen Arkell teachers and the understanding they bring was so important for my self esteem and built confidence when I felt excluded and misunderstood.

Any support you give me to support them will be hugely appreciated.

About the charity

Left undiagnosed and unsupported, dyslexia negatively impacts children and young people. It affects their self-esteem. Their ability to learn. Their life chances. With your support, Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity can help people with dyslexia from all backgrounds to believe, achieve and succeed.
