Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The London Marathon is unique.  So is what The Makaton Charity does, helping kids and adults to communicate and get on with life in the way that many of us take for granted (as you can find out by visiting www.makaton.org).  As a Trustee of the charity, I know what great work they do.

I am aiming to raise £26,200 for The Makaton Charity to support their fantastic work helping  individuals to communicate meaningfully and effectively.

Makaton uses signs (gestures) and symbols (pictures) with speech and is used by children and adults with learning or communication difficulties.  It is used by people like Alex, who as a little girl, could not speak or make herself understood.  When she was thirsty, she couldn’t ask for a drink or when she was in pain she couldn’t tell her mum that her ears hurt so used to bang her head on the wall.  Now, through using Makaton symbols and signs, Alex can tell people a whole load of things!  

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.
