St Edwards Sensory Room

(Greater Manchester)

My daughter has a terminal illness and attends a mainstream school, St. Edwards RC Primary School.

She loves the school and everybody there loves Ruby and she is included in everything.

However, they are looking to build a Sensory Room for the school which can be utilised not just by Ruby but by all children.

Our goals:

  • Create a peaceful relaxing area for all children
