There is still time to donate a prize/ gift card/service if you have one available please 🙏,  all proceeds are going to our fundraiser. I can be messaged at pennybissett@hotmail.com to discuss further. Thank you all so much ❤️ 

Day 1 and Day 2 Complete

First two days are complete and I've loved doing the steps and chatting to lots of wonderful people about our fundraising.  I've been blown away by people's genoristy and it's been a pleasure discussing the wonderful world of neurodiversity with everyone.  I've been lucky with the dry weather so far, however I did nearly fly away in the dinosaur today due to the wind picking up 😀! Freddie is really excited to get started from Friday too 🙌 thank you to everyone for following our journey 

Charity Bucket

Yay! I have my permit to carry my charity bucket all ready so I will be off tomorrow starting my 10,000 steps- let's do this! 

Practice Steps

We've been out and about today getting some practice steps in, in our Dino costumes.  Was lovely chatting to so many people about our fundraising too. ☺️, if we saw you today! Thanks for being so kind ☺️❤️

Raffle

Following the overwhelming support we have received from Nottingham in our fundraising challenge we are running a raffle with all proceeds going to our fundraiser  ☺️. Tickets will be on sale very soon! We are busy collecting prizes, if you are a business who would be able to supply a prize or a gift card/ money off voucher for our raffle- please get in touch with me at pennybissett@hotmail.com thank you 😊 ( I will advertise all prizes and who donated on my social media for maximum coverage too. )

Horse and Groom

Huge thank you to our wonderful local pub, the Horse and Groom, Moorgreen for sharing our story on their social media and for having a collection pot on their bar ☺️ we are so grateful for your support !

Mapping our route

Thank you to everyone for your continued support in our fundraising challenge 🙏💚, we've been so humbled by all the local support too 🥰🫶. We've been busy mapping our route - to give some perspective- 10,000 steps is around 8km and we've equated it will take 7 and a half laps of our local park and around 1 hour 45 mins to complete,  all whilst in our Dino costumes and not just for 1 day but for 8 days 🤣, so its no easy task. . . 😅, however, we're looking forward to starting on 26th March and please, pray for dry weather and no wind 🙏😅. 

Thanks again everyone, you all rock !

Guess the name of the Bunny

We're running an additional guess the name of the bunny competition with all proceeds going to our fundraiser. I've approached a few local businesses about the bunny sitting there, so will let you know as soon as possible where he will be situated, in the meantime, guesses are welcome on my Facebook page 😀.  Photos are attached in our gallery. Thank you. 

Local support!

Wow, we've been blown away by local support! We've had our fundraising story shared in The Nottingham Post, the Eastwood and Kimberley Advertiser and the Nugget 😍❤️. We're committed to raising as much funds and awareness as possible and are forever grateful to everyone supporting our journey 😀 ❤️.  

Over £600 ❤️🫶

Wow! we cannot believe the heart warming, continued support from friends, family and the local community in our fundraising challenge ❤️. We never dreamed of raising so much money 💰. We are absolutely blown away. Thank you, thank you,  thank you - from the bottom of our hearts. ❤️🫶

Hall of Fame! 🥹❤️

What can we say ? Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🥹, to each and every one of you who have supported our challenge and who continue to do so, we are so very grateful.  Now we have surpassed £500 😱 and we could not be anymore grateful ❤️ Fred is over the moon to be a 'fundraising legend' and I know he will wear his gold medal with pride. Much love ❤️ 

A refresh on why we are taking part!

Just a refresh on why we are taking part ❤️. As a family, we are walking for our superstar Freddie. Fred was diagnosed ASD /ADHD just over a year ago. It seems our story is quite rare, in the fact that, Fred attends an amazing school who evidently recognise and understand SEN needs, this enabled us to obtain a diagnosis surprisingly quickly, Fred has then been paired with a wonderful paediatrician who took the time to talk to myself about my understanding and how as a family we could educate ourselves further, which prompted my mass of 'learning', since then we have worked tirelessly as a family tweaking life for Fred at home and school and he his thriving. We know our story has been fortunate that support, diagnosis,  his school, everyone has been 100% behind us, so we are raising funds and awareness not only for Fred's future but also to help the world catch up and hopefully then every child will be supported just as well as Fred. ❤️

Wow, wow, wow

We are absolutely blown away by everyone's support and generosity. We started with a fundraising goal of £125, after reaching this we raised it to £200, then £250, then £300 and now we are currently at over £350!!! 
This is a very important journey for us and are so very grateful to everyone following our journey 🙏 

Dino steps!

So we've decided to walk our 80,000 steps riding dinosaurs! 😊 Check out our latest photos. We're still planning our 8 days but we hope to be walking lots of local places so keep an eye out and show your support if you see us!  

Thank you Everyone !

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us so far, 💗 after smashing our first target we've now raised this to £200! We have some surprise fundraising ideas we're going to reveal soon too- watch this space 😀 

Our dreams!

We have a very fortunate story, our little boy's struggles were recognised and supported very early. Not only that but we are part of an extremely supportive school and my little boy has a class of very understanding friends, we would love this to become the 'normal' for every child. Every child should be given the support to thrive in school. That's our aim and we want to make it a reality !

Thank you !

Thank you to all our supporters so far! We've been exploring lots of beautiful places to walk for our steps and have lots of extra fundraising ideas planned 😀 

Let's do this!
