Order your Dinosaur Day fundraising pack today!
Wednesday 8th May 2019
It's just six weeks until Contact's roar-some Dino Day fundraiser.
During the week of 19th June, families and friends up and down the country will be donning their aprons and getting creative in the kitchen to create delicious dino-themed cakes and biscuits to raise money for Contact. There's still time to sign up to take part in a dino-tastic cake sale and join them. Order your fundraising pack today complete with prehistoric goodies to inspire children and parents alike.
Dinosaur Day was inspired by Cameron Mathieson, a little boy who spent long periods of his life in hospital before he sadly died aged five. His parents Craig and Lynette are the biggest supporters of Dino Day and Contact's By Your Side project, which supports families when their child is in hospital. Our staff and volunteers based in some of the largest children's hospitals in the country provide vital advice and information as well as a supportive listening ear to families at the hardest time of their lives.
Josh Spearpoint, who volunteers with Contact's By Your Side project at Great Ormond Street Hospital, said: "I feel very grateful to give something back to families with disabled children. I spent a big part of my childhood in hospitals due to my disabilities. Sharing my experiences with those seeking support is amazing. I'm blown away by what Contact does."
Josh has gone the extra mile for Contact, and is in training for London Marathon 2020. Go Josh!
