A good cause in Macclesfield will now be able to afford new specialist equipment for SEND children.

Macclesfield Community Initiative - Children And Baby Library is a mostly-free service which provides toys, books and more to help families in Macclesfield.

Macclesfield Community Initiative - Children And Baby Library receives no government funding, and relies on the generosity of the public and local business community.

And one of those businesses, has just donated a whopping amount of cash.

Online competitions firm Easy Winning Limited, has donated £250 to their latest crowdfunder.

These aids ranged from spinning chairs, wobble boards and sensory lights.

They are expensive for both families - and the good cause to afford - so a crowdfunder was launched.

But thanks to the generous donation by Easy Winning, the fundraiser is now a huge chunk of the way to the ultimate £200 goal.

Following the donation from the Buxton-based online competitions firm, the current total now stands at £250.

"We want to say a massive thank you to the Easy Winning team," said Shannon.

"It's not often businesses work so hard to give back out to the community so we really do appreciate those who do!"

22 individuals have donated to the GoFundMe for the new sensory aids, and you too can do so on this link.

"We have many families in Macclesfield that have children waiting diagnosis or being diagnosed with autism and other SEND [conditions]," added Shannon.

"We want to ensure that all families have the ability to help their children self regulate at home as well as at places such as Space4Autism in Macclesfield and Ruby's in Congleton.

"We have recently donated a spinning chair to Space4Autism [of Mill Lane] and have sent a Sensory board to Ruby's.

"We feel that the lack of governmental support for these families means we have no choice but to try to help.

"We would like to express our gratitude to Easy Winning for again, choosing to support us.

"Their donations allow us to do things that we may have had to wait to sort out. The support of our group in invaluable and we love the community we have created within the group, of people who want to vote for us for such things.

"It shows that we are helping as many people as we can and we will continue to strive to do so."
