FUNDRAISING NEWS: Children's charity gets kids thinking of the five senses

The Children's Trust is to launch an educational and fundraising pack next month aiming to teach primary school children about the five senses while raising funds.

The combination pack, named Sense-ations, explores how we use and depend on our senses.

Sense-ations will be sent out to local schools at the end of this month in preparation for the trust's annual awareness week from 5-11 October.

It urges children to raise much needed money for the trust by taking part in activities including a bring-and-buy sale, a sponsored "spellathon

and drawing a face on the playground and filling it with coins. The pack also includes a cardboard collection box.

The money raised will help children who have suffered a brain injury or have been born with brain damage, by providing them with multi-sensory therapy, which helps them to relearn lost skills and improve their quality of life.

Clare White, community fundraiser at The Children's Trust, said: "Sense-ations is a great way for young children to have fun while learning. They will explore how their senses while raising money for children whose senses have been damaged.
