The Big Trip

I need your help bloggers!

Those of you who are regular followers of my somewhat irregular blog will know that my precious boy, Ross, attends a residential school for those children most profoundly affected by autism. For the first time I'm giving details of the school, Daldorch House, so that you can read for yourself about the wonderful work they do. Before I give you the link I need to ask for your help. As with so many schools, private and otherwise, in this day and age, they are facing a serious economic crisis and I really want to do every little bit I can to help them.

With Christmas approaching, I'm asking if those of you who make your own Christmas cards can spare a card and the cost of a postage stamp to send up a card which I can forward to the school to be sold in aid of their funds.

I am going to be setting my mind to other bigger ways of raising funds but thought I would kick off with this one.

To read about Daldorch click here.

I would like to add that although the school is situated up here in Scotland, it accepts children from all over the UK from the Orkney Isles to the Scilly Isles.

Right - must dash - cupcakes won't make themselves - am doing weekly bake sale at work as another fund-raising ploy! All other ideas for fund-raising gratefully accepted.

Thanks for taking the time to stop and read.
