You Did It!!
You smashed it! You absolutely smashed our aim to raise £30,000 for 30 years! Huge thanks to all those who raised funds from cake sales, running, cycling, swimming, sky diving, hiking, fantasy football, giving up alcohol and even a rickshaw challenge from Goa to Mumbai and an ever increasing number of birthday donations on Facebook. We are delighted to announce that, with your help we reached an amazing £31,654.34 as we closed the appeal on 31st May.
Fundraising continues, as usual with the help of our newly appointed Fundraising Consultant and regular initiatives such as the London 10K in July and Dyspraxia Awareness Week (6 —12th October). Special thanks to our members who have renewed their subscription for 2019 – 2020 to support our work. If you are not a member, this is a great time to join to receive monthly newsletters, regular updates, dedicated members area of the website, discounts for online shop, events and conferences and more importantly to support all we do.

As we close 2019, we have to share a sad farewell to two members of our Hitchin Office.
Sadly, we will be operating with a skeleton crew as we start 2020 as we say good bye and good luck at the end of this year to Alex Bettey who leaves to take some time out and to Jo Webb who has been offered her dream job working with horses.
Both have been very much part of the Hitchin Team and will be greatly missed but we wish them well and hope they will not be strangers at 8 West Alley.
