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.

Below is an open reply, from our chair Sophie Kayani, to a request from Peter Guest to support his initiative to raise money to support individuals to have a Dyspraxia/DCD diagnosis.
As always we are impressed with your enthusiasm and endeavours to support people with Dyspraxia/DCD. You know that diagnosis is on our priority list and is one of the features of our focus for 2019-20. Diagnosis of Dyspraxia/DCD is complex, led mainly by the medical profession in childhood and then in later years the majority of diagnosis is carried out by psychologists or specialist teachers.
For awareness week 2019 – with a focus on Adults & Higher Education – we will be looking for personal stories which we can share across our website, social media channels and to the media to heighten awareness.
Our Devon & Cornwall local group are hosting another exciting event with Dr Emma Tremaine – The Dyspraxic Doctor – on Anxiety, Mental Health and Well being! The event takes place on Tuesday 17th September and members of the Foundation can attend for just £8! (a 50% discount!)
