Help to get funding for Speech, Sign and Song

Message from Wendy Prevezer of Speech, Sign and Song

I’m writing to ask you to vote for Speech, Sign and
Song
in the National Lottery Awards. Speech, Sign and
Song is a weekly music group run by Wendy Prevezer and Roma Seth in
Beeston, Nottingham, for pre-school children who have communication
difficulties. The group includes children with autism, Downs syndrome, and other
speech and language/learning difficulties.
 Please see our website www.speechsignsong.co.uk for a photo of
the group round the Big Drum, and more information about the club.
 We have been entered in the National Lottery Awards, which
aims to find the ‘UK’s favourite lottery-funded project’. (The lottery funded
our launch and our first year of sessions). We’ve already reached the semi-final
and so are down to the top ten projects in the Best Education
category, out of 850 entries. We’ll be featured in ‘Best’ magazine on 7th June!
We could win £2000 for the Speech, Sign and Song Club as well as raising our
profile.
 The next stage depends on public voting. We are competing
with nine other Education projects to reach the final round. We’re a very small
group compared with some other semi-finalists, so every vote will count. Voting
closes at midday on 20th June.
 You can vote now at www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awards (Look for us in the Best Education category) or phone 0844 836 9685. Obviously it’s free if
you do it online…
So please do vote for us and forward this email to anyone else
who may be interested. Thank you in advance for your support, and for helping us
to spread the word about this unique and very valuable project.
