As the festive season is now well and truly upon us, we would like to share with you some Christmas Cards drawn by children and grandchildren of our members of staff. They were all so brilliant that we just couldn't select one so we are sending you all three. We hope you enjoy them.
Once again, we are keeping our tradition and rather than spending money on printing and posting Christmas cards, we have chosen to donate to three well worthy charities chosen by our team.
Founded by Jane Harris & Jimmy Edmonds, The Good Grief Project was set up in memory of their son Josh who unfortunately died aged 22 in an accident while travelling in South East Asia.
The Good Grief Project’s mission is to promote an understanding of what it means to grieve in a society that often has difficulty talking openly about death, dying and bereavement.
"Thanks to the generosity of the Water Hygiene Centre, the donation in lieu of Christmas cards will help to fund our Active Grief Retreats for bereaved parents"
For the 5th year running we are supporting SpecialEffect, one of our neighbours here at Cornbury Park, who use specialist technology ranging from modified joy pads and eye-control to enhance the quality of life of people of all ages who have severe physical challenges, whether as a result of a disability, traumatic injury or debilitating illness. They put the fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities. Click here to see their amazing work with Aarron.
Dyspraxia, is a form of developmental coordination disorder (DCD) and is surprisingly common in both children and adults
“Everyone says I’m stupid but I know I'm not. I wish someone could understand what it is like to be me. I feel so fed up and lonely.” - Sarah, an eight year-old girl who has Dyspraxia
It is a hidden condition, which is sill poorly understood. The Dyspraxia Foundation is committed to making the teaching and medical professions more aware of Dyspraxia; and to spread understanding of how those who have the condition can be helped.
We hope our donation can help to make a difference to those in need.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at the Water Hygiene Centre.
