Cash to make Christmas a special time

Julie Baker and daughter Shannon (11) have applied for Smile Campaign funding for sensory equipment

Julie Baker and daughter Shannon (11) have applied for Smile Campaign funding for sensory equipment

The mother of a “happy” little girl with severe disabilities resulting from a bleed on the brain when she was just two weeks old is among the latest to apply for a slice of our Smile Campaign cash pot.

Julie Baker is hoping to be among the lucky ones who will be handed a mini windfall from the £10,000 being offered by Spalding and District Round Table to help make life better for those who need it.

Just about anyone can apply for any project – for themselves, on behalf of someone else, for a group, a club or school.

Applications will be considered by a panel from the Round Table and a representative of the Spalding Guardian, who will decide who will receive a donation of up to £500. Requests over £500 will also be considered.

Julie is asking for £500 to buy sensory equipment, such as bubble lamps, to enrich the life of her 11-year-old daughter Shannon, who has hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy and severe learning difficulties.

Although Shannon is wheelchair-bound, Julie said: “She attends the Garth School and has respite care where she has access to these sensory rooms. She is a really happy little girl but having some of this equipment in her bedroom would really benefit her.”
