When Ruby started at Rushwick Pre-School, staff and parents immediately launched into fundraising
to enable her to have the equipment she needed to be able to make the most of her time with her friends at school. That was
just the start of the amazing generosity of local people, friends and relatives. Listed below are the fundraising events

The Tesco Muscular Dystrophy

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have donated your time and money to Ruby's cause.
What we have raised so far has provided equipment that has made life for Ruby so much easier. There are so many pieces
of specialist equipment that Ruby needs in order to live life comfortably and as she gets older she needs more and more.
Unfortunately because a lot of this equipment is not mass produced it is hugely expensive and therefore we have to keep
up the fundraising.
The amounts raised above have funded a potty chair, a standing frame for school, a trike for
school, a bee chair for home, a sleep system for night time and a floor seat.
