My story

[p]Two out of three of my brilliant kids are deaf. They go to an excellent school that, like all schools, is feeling the impact of a reduction in funding over recent years. So much so that they have had to set up a charity in their name - Friends of Blanche Nevile - so that they can continue to support Deaf children on their journey to reaching their potential. [/p][p]As a hearing parent to Deaf children there are things I will never be able to offer my kids - the experience of growing up deaf for one. Having access to Deaf adults, Deaf peers, Deaf role models and allies, as well as British Sign Language being taught by a native signer are invaluable experiences unavailable in a mainstream school. All special needs schools are struggling in the current climate and it is imperative that they are supported in order for all children to be given an equal chance at success. [/p][p]Our family have been through a turbulent time with our children's deafness and the school have been an unwavering support throughout. They are an extension of our family and know our children as well as we do. [/p][p]I am running the London Marathon for my children's education and the education of their peers. I am running because the funding the school currently receives is not enough. I am running because all kids deserve better. I am running because I have to do something and I can do this. Please sponsor me if you can. [/p]
