Susan's fundraising story

“Note to self – do not agree to do a skydive in front of witnesses and after I’ve had a couple of wines! Next thing we’re booked in eeek!

The support from Henshaws was fantastic. When I received the first email from Hettie, I thought how lovely for someone to take the time to write and thank me for what I was doing. The continued support was absolutely amazing and I felt proud to be supporting Henshaws.

It was such a fantastic experience, would definitely do it again! And knowing that I’d done it for such an amazing charity made it even more worthwhile.”

Your support has a very real impact on people's lives, as it means we can continue our life-changing services for people like Ruby

“My daughter Ruby is three years old and has been completely blind since birth and is also developmentally delayed.

I first came to Henshaws’ Liverpool Centre in 2011. I was incredibly scared and felt really isolated, but it was a huge relief to find Henshaws. I had no idea what to expect from Ruby’s condition and felt very anxious about it all. I really struggled to come to terms with what Ruby’s life might be like. I think I’ve gained a huge amount from Henshaws, not just getting out of the house more with Ruby but seeing how other families cope with disabled children has given me real hope and confidence that Ruby can have a happy future.”
