£1,200.00 Target Goal
*UPDATE* Fantastic news! We've hit our original target of £1,000. Please keep those donations coming so that we can buy even more sensory resources for Wheatley Nursery. Thank you. I am running the Oxford Half Marathon to raise £1,000 to buy new sensory resources for children with special needs at the Wheatley Nursery School. Saarah loved going there and with your support we can provide these wonderful resources to benefit many more children for years to come. Thank you for your generosity.
We have set up Saarah’s Fund in memory of Saarah, our beautiful and beloved 4 year old daughter, who passed away completely unexpectedly in her sleep on the 11th of March 2011. She was truly a miracle: born 11 weeks early, weighing 3lb 3oz, she overcame meningitis twice before she finally came home after three months. Then aged one she had pneumonia and a serious secondary infection to which she almost succumbed. Remarkably she bounced back and for the next three years she enjoyed good health. Unfortunately the meningitis left its mark: hearing loss in one ear, nystagmus (wobbly eyes), very low muscle tone and developmental delay. However, through her courage and determination, she was overcoming all these challenges and had blossomed into a fun loving and outgoing little girl. She brought us so much love and joy and was a source of inspiration to all who knew her. Through the generosity of family, friends and complete strangers alike, over the last ten we have raised nearly £50,000 for various causes. This includes seven incubators at the Iman Hospital in Syria, four incubators in Yemen, an outdoor play train at the JR Hospital, play equipment for the Wheatley Nursery, and a contribution towards the new indoor arena at RDA Abingdon, both of which Saarah used to attend. By donating to Saarah’s Fund you can help more children like Saarah achieve their full potential. Thank you for your generosity and God bless you.
