Some of our children have sensory processing needs or anxieties and require somewhere calm to retreat to whenever they are feeling overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of the school environment. Others struggle with managing their feelings and need a safe space to calm down when they have lost control of their emotions and become angry and agitated.
At the moment we have very limited resources to deal with these situations - three homemade 'dens' that provide a little respite - and we would really love to provide the children with that 'safe space' in the form of a sensory room.
We need your help to make this wish come true.
The target of £12,000 covers the cost of transforming the room, including the following list of more specific items that would create such an amazing space.
£3663 is needed to purchase the floor and wall padding.
£579 is needed to purchase a bubble tube.
£250 is needed to purchase bubble column podium for the bubble tube.
£875 is needed to purchase an LED rod wall.
£149 is needed to purchase a laser stars projector.
£439 is needed to purchase some calming fibre optic tails.
Any donation would be hugely appreciated and will make a real difference!
