At breaking point

Even at six - Jaxson can be a real danger to himself and others when he has a fit.

That's why his family wanted to build him a special sensory shed where he could have fun but also be safe.

But the ran out of money when there was still so much to and Rebecca broke down.

Do so much more

But that's when she was told about Hunstanton Roundtable.

At first Rebecca thought they only ran the big Bonfire Night event but soon found out they do so much more.

They were moved by her and Jaxson's story and decided to help.

They helped with the sensory shed but also helped buy specialist equipment to help keep Jaxson calm.

Hear how much it means to Rebecca.

 

Hunstanton Roundtable rely on donations and support at events like the Firework Night to continue this work.

That's why they charge admission on these nights to make sure families like Rebecca's can get the help they need.
