I wanted to share and say thanks again to one of our donators last year Big Game Hunters - they kindly donated a giant outdoor Snakes and Ladders Game which we had set up on the day for the kids and adults to enjoy, the game was a fab donation as it will give again this year when set up for use.
If you think you could donate an item that could be used at our 2013 Grayson's Great Funday please do email me !!!!
One of the companies that helped us was Garden Games, they donated a fab Giant Outdoor Snakes and Ladders, which we put out for the kids (and a few adults) to enjoy whilst at the Funday. This year it will be set up again as it was such a hit.
At £41 the game is a steal and will bring years of fun, it's so easy to set up and took me less than 5 minutes, it's a case of pushing the stakes into place and blowing up the dice, measuring 10ft squared it literally can be enjoyed for anyone over 2 yrs old, although Addy at just over a year did enjoy playing on it too.
Completely washable plastic it's fantastic for being used outside, but packs up into a tiny box, I was asked by so many people at the funday where I had got it as it kept the kids entertained for ages, plus it really is a family classic.
Please excuse all the noise in the background, this was Grayson testing the Leckey Walker at his Birthday Party, if you have ever seen this little boy you know he can barely even stand straight, let alone walk, this would I believe make a hugely different future for Grayson.
In 2012 I held a Charity Funday in my Son's name - Grayson's Great Fun Day, the event was more of a success than I could have ever asked for.
With over 100/150 people in attendance and raised £3200.00 in aid of Grayson, SWAN UK and Cerebra.
Many people badgered, asked and pleaded that I should make it an annual event and although heavily pregnant this year and with many appointments for Grayson how could I deny.
2012 - Funday - My Siblings and I - They all Helped Out
So on 25th August 2013 between 11am and 4pm we are doing it all again, minus my head shave of course.
I want to make it bigger and better if I can, but to do that I need a massive amount of support from you all.
If you want to learn more about Grayson's Great Fun Day and what it is go here. I shall be updating the blog over the next month with info about Grayson, why I shaved my head in 2012, why we have chosen in 2013 to support SWAN UK and MS Society and much much more, so please subscribe to receive posts via email so you can keep up to date.
If not do follow us on Twitter and head over and join our Facebook page, as well as keeping up with Grayson's Progress in photo's over on Instagram.
If you feel you can help in anyway please contact me, I want to make the world a better place for all children with undiagnosed disabilities as well as my special little boy.
