Friday the 16th October (2015) will see the Dyspraxia Foundation – the only charity in the UK dedicated to raising awareness of dyspraxia and championing the needs of people living with the condition – once again pulling together with schools and workplaces across the country to help raise funds and awareness.
After the successful launch of “Funky Friday” in 2014, the charity is again asking students and staff to be bold by wearing something fun and funky to help raise funds and awareness!
And, it couldn’t be simpler! Instead of wearing your sombre suits, classic clothes or understated uniform why not put some garish, eye-catching colours on! You could wear multi-coloured socks, sunglasses, a bright hat or tie – the brighter the better! download your funky friday poster here
If you choose to take part, all we ask for is a small donation which will help support the Dyspraxia Foundation and the many young people and adults that the charity offers guidance and practical advice to across the UK – as well as taking a photo or “silly-selfie” we can upload to our Facebook page to share with our 17,000+ followers. https://www.facebook.com/dyspraxiafoundation
Chair of the Dyspraxia Foundation, Michele Lee says, ‘Dyspraxia remains a poorly understood condition and despite the hard work of our team and supporters, we know there is still so much more we can achieve. By raising awareness of early recognition, those affected with the condition can receive the help they so desperately need and ensure that they can reach their maximum potential in life.’
“We hope that by holding a nationwide Funky Friday again this year, we will make some “noise” and really capture the public’s attention, encouraging people to stop and think about the vital work we are doing to help those living with dyspraxia.”
