Pyjama Day for FND Matters NI

🚨 Charity Pyjama Day - FND Matters NI 🚨 

 

On Friday 11th February, we will hold a charity Pyjama Day in aid of FND Matters NI.

 

Children are encouraged to come to school in their PJs and make a donation to an extremely worthwhile cause.

 

FND Matters NI is a local charity which aims to raise awareness of Functional Neurological Disorder throughout Northern Ireland. As a school, we were upset to hear of the life-changing struggles Erin Wall, former pupil and sister of current P7 Lewis, has had to deal with in recent years as a result of the rare condition.

 

I’ve attached an article below in which Erin and her mother outline in detail the symptoms she and her family go through on an almost daily basis, some of which include regular seizures which can result in temporary partial or complete paralysis. Unfortunately because FND is so rare, there is currently no treatment path available to Erin and the few others who suffer from the disorder.

 

I’d encourage all families to take the time to read the article and donate generously if at all possible.
