Jaru’s Fundraiser

It was a lovely surprise to be contacted by Denbury School this week. Jaru, a young surfer from our South Devon Surf Club did a fundraiser at his school as part of Down Syndrome Awareness Day.

Jaru wrote us a lovely note (check out the super cool paper) to let us know he had raised £59.05 from his school fundraiser. He even got up in assembly to talk about The Wave Project!

His teacher wrote to say, “It was a brilliant day and during his presentation he took great delight in sharing the fact that he could surf. He speaks very highly of your team and has many fond memories.”

“Well done for all the work you do to make a difference for children like Jaru. His confidence has really been bolstered by his experience with you.”

Well done Jaru, thank you so much for being brave and for getting up in assembly to talk about surfing with us!  Thank you everyone at Denbury Surf School for fundraising for us.

See you at Surf Club soon Jaru!

From Jaru’s Note: “Dear Katie, Yesterday was World Down Syndrome Day and I made biscuits and pizza-toast to raise money for The Wave Project.  I did an assembly with a video and played the song “This is me” to my school to celebrate our differences.  I felt happy.  I have raised £59.05p I hope you like my pictures”
