On Saturday 29th August Janine, Elliot, Jo and Kobe tackled Pen-Y-Fan (the highest peak in South Wales)

Well Done to all four of you and thank you so much for setting yourself this amazing challenge to support Sparkle!

Thank you to everyone who has donated - you have contributed to raise over £1000 - how amazing! If you'd like to donate you can still so via: https://gf.me/u/yqhuxu

Jo said "It really was our pleasure. Sparkle has provided so much support to the boys (and us) during our journeys. I have been involved with sparkle for over 6 years and Janine more recently however the support and opportunities provided for us and the boys has been nothing short of amazing.

Therefore we wanted to give something back. We initially set out target for £400 and we exceeded that so we kept pushing for more. No doubt annoying our family and friends with the constant appeals but for us we wanted to get as much as we possibly could for Sparkle. This is just a drop in the ocean for what we have had back from Sparkle. So I'm sorry to our Facebook friends who have undoubtedly been fed up with the constant appeals for more sponsors but for us we needed to get as much as we could for you guys.

Sparkle has helped the boys to access activities and opportunities they wouldn't be able to access in the community.   They have made friends and they have fantastic relationships with the staff.  The staff are so caring to the children and able to tune into their individual needs and personalities and are worth their weight in gold. Zoe has been a constant rock for Kobe and is able to tune into him and bring him down from a meltdown almost instantly. She has been the constant playworker from our initial journey and she will always be a special part of Kobes Sparkle journey and mine.

I have made friends with parents through our journeys and a few of us are in regular contact and spend time together with the boys outside of Sparkle and I'm forever greatful to have that opportunity to make these friendship for me and Kobe.

I can speak for both Janine and I that we cannot thank Sparkle enough for what they do. We just hope this has helped to begin to repay you for what you have done for us as families."
