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.

On 26th July, the Dyspraxia Foundation called for Case Studies from adults living with dyspraxia to support Dyspraxia Awareness Week, 6 – 12th October 2019.
Thank you to the 40 adults who responded and kindly gave their consent for us to share their personal story to highlight this year’s campaign which focusses on dyspraxia in adulthood.
The case study form included several questions about the individual, their diagnosis and experience of living with the condition. Here are some of the comments in answer to the question ‘How would you like to see things change for adults with dyspraxia?’
Can you honestly believe it, it’s Day 7 of awareness week already! It goes without saying that Dyspraxia Awareness is 24/7, 365 days a year – but it’s important that for one week a year we all come together and shout as loud as we can!
Our thanks to Dr Judith Gentle and our Dyspraxia Foundation Youth Champion Imogen Rowe for producing this first draft of a useful information sheet on Driving with Dyspraxia.
This is a working document which we aim to develop further.
