Sponsored Silence Raises Money for Sense

Monday 13 November 2017

IMG_4447Students in the Junior School have donated £930.30 to Sense, the national charity that supports people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs, to enjoy more independent lives.

The children raised the money by doing a sponsored silence at the end of last year after the charity was nominated by two of our Year 6 (D Group) students.

Today Lydia, a representative from the charity, came to the Junior School to receive the funds and to talk to students about how the money will be used by the charity, and about some of the children and families who might benefit from it.

Some of the activities include:

  • Swimming lessons at one of Sense's centres for children who are deadblind
  • Sensory toys and musical instruments for children to interact with
  • An activity on one of Sense's holidays such as rock climbing or horse riding
