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).

A rare opportunity has arisen to join our small friendly admin team in Hitchin to support our busy office.
We are looking for someone who has previous office experience, knowledge of SAGE Line 50 essential, IT literate and a good telephone manner.
Sadly, Treasurer Lesley French has resigned from her position on the Board due to personal reasons. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Lesley for her support during the past year and her invaluable advice on charity fundraising and finances. Therefore, we are currently recruiting a qualified Accountant or Experienced Finance professional to join the Board of Trustees as Treasurer. The post is voluntary and would require visits to our offices in Hitchin on a regular basis and attendance at Meetings of the Board of Trustees held every 2 months, usually in London. The applicant should be familiar with SAGE Line 50 and used to preparing and monitoring cash flows and budgets.
…. with the Dyspraxic Doctor, Dr Emma Tremaine.
Location: Penventon Park Hotel, West End, Redruth
When: Tuesday 26th November 2019 – 6:30 – 8:30pm
Dyspraxia can affect cognitive skills and how the brain plans, processes and responds to information. Emma will discuss everything from supporting learning and confidence with motor tasks in both children and adults, to understanding and managing difficulties with organisation, planning and working memory.
Coordination, balance and posture will also be discussed, as well as muscle tone and why Dyspraxic individuals may ache and be more prone to injuring themselves.
Importantly, we will also look at the strengths and positives of Dyspraxia too! You will leave with some ideas for simple strategies to help yourself or those you support with Dyspraxia to thrive at home, in education and in the workplace.
