By taking part, you’ll be giving a special Christmas gift to children who are deafblind. Your gift could help pay for the time a Sense Children and Family Support Worker spends with a child, teaching them how to communicate with their family. Or it could help towards the cost of a Christmas Family Day, where a Sense Family Centre is transformed into a sensory winter wonderland for children who are deafblind to enjoy.

"There are many ways children who are deafblind or who have other complex disabilities experience the excitement of Christmas.

At our Sense Family Centres, we introduce seasonal scents like ginger and cinnamon in activities like ‘messy play’. The children begin to associate these scents with other things that happen at Christmas, like unwrapping presents, or watching the light reflect off sparkly decorations. This helps children build up sensory memories and to begin to look forward to Christmas.

Lots of the children we support love to sign and sing along to carols. We have an object of reference or picture associated with each song and ask the children to choose the one they’d like to learn. We play the music and everybody joins in. It’s wonderful to see the children’s enjoyment.

Your generosity makes it possible for us to work with children at Christmas and all year round, helping them to express themselves using systems like British Sign Language and Makaton. You can give us the time we need with families to help children who are deafblind learn to communicate and make the most of Christmas.

It would be wonderful if you could buy or sell the enclosed raffle tickets, and if you are able to, please consider making an extra donation today! Thank you for your support."
