Hi Everyone! We just wanted to do another shout out to see if anyone would like to write a supportive, message to be included within our Early Years Sensory Discovery Packs.

The packs are for new families who have a baby or toddler with a vision impairment. It was suggested by one of our parents in this group and we just think it is such a lovely and welcoming idea!

We'd love to have a few to send out with our packs that are going out in time for Christmas. The idea is that you donate towards the pack and send a note to let them know there is a supportive parent community out there and they are not alone.

Just donate what you can afford! When you go to the link you'll find the donation amount is set to £20, we know there are lots of asks for money at this time of year, so if that's too high, you can write your own amount in the box underneath. This could be £5 or whatever amount you would like, we'll be very grateful for your support. Everything we raise will go towards supplying more packs to more families.

You can take part here: victa.enthuse.com/cf/sensorypackappeal

Any questions just drop myself and Charlotte an email at parents@victa.org.uk

Thank you so much! Emily 🌈
