Perseid School

Poppy runs for SeeAbility

Poppy, whose younger brother attends Perseid School, has chosen to run the London Marathon and raise funds for SeeAbility. Below, Poppy shares in her own words why she has chosen to race and fundraise for SeeAbility.

SeeAbility has transformed my brother and my family's life. Previously Luke had to go to the hospital in order to attend sight appointments. This was a traumatic experience for him, us and the NHS staff. SeeAbility now provides this support in school, making the process so much easier and accessible for everyone. Luke even got to meet the Duchess of Edinburgh who is a patron of the charity. In recent years as a result of SeeAbility's support, he is growing up to become a more engaged and talkative young boy.

SeeAbility specialises in supporting people who have learning disabilities, who may also have sight loss. The charity encourages people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society. The people they support overcome huge barriers to achieve exciting new things every day - they challenge us all to think about what’s possible and to rethink disability.
