This year, Henshaws are taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge.
The thought of losing your sight is terrifying, but learning that your child suffers from sight loss is indescribable. Our specialist Children and Families team help families to overcome the barriers that sight loss can cause.
If you want to help, now is the time to do it, as this year for our Christmas appeal, we are teaming up with the Big Give to take part in their annual challenge. If you donate to us between 5th and 9th of December online The Big Give will
DOUBLE YOUR DONATION!
If you can help us reach our target of £4,000 by donating during challenge week, the total will be doubled to £8,000
This will allow us to provide 695 hours of specialist support and care to visually impaired children and parents, and without this support; many families would not know where to turn.
If you donate £40 we will get £80
This will pay for a family with a VI child to join one of our day activities – which give families with visually impaired children the much needed support to enable them to do activities they wouldn’t ever think were possible
If you donate £125 we will get £250
Which would pay for a volunteer to be recruited and trained to support our children and families team in the valuable work they do.
The more you give the higher the final amount will be, so please consider making a donation to help families in need of support. Please visit our project page on the Big Give Website between the 5th and 10th of December to make your donation.
Your money will help families like Kait’s recive the support they need
“I can’t thank Henshaws enough for what they’ve done for Oscar and our family. Oscar is a wonderful little boy, so full of life, interest and adventure. I know things aren’t always going to be easy for him but we’ve learnt how we can support him and I’m confident that he has a wonderful future ahead.”
Kait Hughes, whose son Oscar is blind.
