Charity Auction - 11th September


Good morning all

Although it may seem a while away as yet, can I please ask you all to turn your thoughts to this year’s Charity Auction, which is to be held at the club on Sunday 11th September.

My charity this year is The Dyspraxia Foundation which supports people (especially children) with motor co-ordination difficulties. Dyspraxia can also affect speech and learning. Dyspraxia can have a major impact on an individual's ability to deal with everyday life - as well as the physical issues of difficulty in co-ordinating muscle movements, there can also be social and emotional difficulties. Living with this condition (the cause of which is largely unknown) can be greatly helped with early identification and support. The Foundation exists to help provide some of that support. It is a small charity doing excellent work helping parents, teachers and other professionals identify early signs of Dyspraxia, providing support to those affected by it and to promoting greater awareness and understanding. They really help change lives.

More details are on their website at http://dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/

If you are able to offer any items or pledges to be auctioned can you please email me (terryknibbs@btinternet.com) or phone/text me (07989 152459). I'm obviously keen that we can raise a significant sum for the Foundation (which was co-founded by Marilyn Owen (Matsa IV) as Marilyn & David have a dyspraxic son) so would love to hear from as many members as possible.

Thanks

Terry
