Welcome to your latest issue of ‘Reaching Out’! This is where you can discover all the ways your support has been helping children who are deafblind like Annie, Logan and Freya.
In your latest edition of ‘Reaching Out’, you can find out just how much our new Sense Centre TouchBase Pears means to five-year-old Annie, who loves to play at our Saturday Club. You’ll also discover how your support of Sense has given Annie the freedom to explore more of the world around her. Thanks to you, Annie has been enjoying an array of exciting activities on days out with her Sense Children and Family Support Worker. Find out what she’s been up to on pages one and two.
As you can read on page three of your newsletter, Logan is a regular visitor to his local Sense Family Centre, Woodside. In fact, he’s about to celebrate his fifth birthday with a party there. Woodside is such a special place for Logan and his family because the space is designed to be totally accessible to children who are deafblind. At Woodside, you are offering Logan the chance to do what other children may take for granted. You are giving him the freedom to play, discover and learn.
On page four of ‘Reaching Out’, you’ll meet eight-year-old Freya who has CHARGE syndrome. Freya is a remarkable little girl who has overcome many challenges to speak, walk and excel in school. Freya is a true inspiration to everyone around her, and her mum Beverley know that whatever obstacle she faces, she can always turn to Sense for support and guidance.
