Story

I am raising money to support The Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity. Helen Arkell was my great-grandmother and she was a real pioneer who improved many people's lives. The Charity leads the way in providing specialist support to children, young people and adults with dyslexia and other Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs). Their mission is to help people: 1. Believe in themselves 2. Achieve their goals and 3. Succeed on their own terms. There is no government funding for dyslexia, despite its lifelong impact. Fundraising is vital to ensure in-depth assessment and tuition is available to anyone with dyslexia, including lower income families and schools in disadvantaged areas. Thank you.

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.
