Let’s share with you a little story!
A few years ago in 2008, little Lulu was born into this world too prematurely, 4 months earlier than her due date, and weighing only 500gms or 1lb!!
Over the years, she has faced difficulties in her development; however she has always faced the world with a big, beautiful, infectious smile!
Today, she continues to grow and amaze everyone around her. She is a happy 8 year old, full of life and happiness, and she provides an amazing sense of wonder to all those that meet her. Lulu loves her school where she has many friends.
Since she has started attend the Swiss Cottage School, her parents had noticed an incredible change in her daughter, who spent her first nine months of life in hospital and has cerebral palsy.
Lulu’s mum Dahlia, said: “She’s just blossomed into this confident girl who talks and sings and bosses everybody around – she acts like a princess!
“We felt we wanted to do something in her honour and what better way to honour her than through her school, where she spends all her time and where all her friends are.”
On 4th September Lulu and her dad Ahmad will be taking on a 10KM run together to contribute to educational development of children with special needs at Swiss Cottage School, and they are already preparing for this challenge!
Your donations will be used to support Lulu and her friends from Swiss Cottage School with Special Educational Needs ranging from Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Communication Disorders, Sensory Needs, Physical Needs, and/or Social, Emotional Mental Health Needs.
Thanks to everyone donating to Team Lulu!
