International Day of Charity

September 5, 2023
In honour of International Day of Charity, we want to shout out about one of our lovely team members, Rachael Carr.
 
Rachael has been completing a challenge to fund raise for The Toby Henderson Trust.
 
Rachael shared Maisie’s story which is the reason she is doing this challenge…
 
“Maisie was diagnosed with Autism in October last year.
 
We had waited since she was around 4 years old to get any help or support. She was 11 when she finally got her diagnosis. When we eventually got referred, there was a wait of 2-2.5 years to been seen by specialist team within the NHS.
We were very lucky to be referred to The Toby Henderson Trust in Bedlington, which is a non-profit organisation, which helps to support children with Autism.
They also have a specialist team who are able to support in diagnosis and post diagnosis of Autism.
 
In appreciation to all the help and support we received around Maisie’s diagnosis, I am going to be doing some fundraising this year.
 
1st – Climbing Helvelyn completed in April ⛰️
2nd – Sky dive at 15,000ft completed in May
3rd – Running the GNR ‍♀️
 
I look forward to helping this fantastic centre in any way possible, so children like Maisie will get the help and support they so clearly need and deserve. “
 
For anyone that wishes to support Rachael in the Great North Run, there is a sponsorship sheet in the Gateshead office (once her just giving page is working again, we will update this page with the link).
 
Good luck in completing this challenge and well done for all of your hard work! You are amazing!
