Story of Headteacher to run the London Marathon

The John Fielding Special School is home to children with severe learning difficulties, with some pupils also with an autistic spectrum disorder, epilepsy, a physical disability, sensory impairment, medical needs and/or a communication difficulty. The school has two minibuses but not the capacity to transport some of the larger wheelchairs pupils use. To make sure no pupils miss out on enrichment activities, we needed to secure a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV), and thanks to some pump-priming funding from the Community Inclusive Trust, we have been able to secure a vehicle. Now, we need to fund raise for the final payment. Project Need We provide our pupils with a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. We use adapted mini buses to transport pupils, however, some children have large wheelchairs and a specially adapted vehicle is required for them. A specific WAV (Wheelchair Adapted Vehicle) will allow us to continue to offer ALL of our pupils experiences such a: Tennis sessions at the Boston Tennis Club; Gymnastics lessons; Swimming lessons; Library visits; Theatre trips to Blackfriars; Field Trips, i.e. Eureka (The National Children’s Museum); Work Experience placements; Life skills, i.e. Shopping in the community. Headteacher Richard Gamman, is running the London marathon to help raise funds. You can help by donating. Any amount will be much appreciated.
