Yoga classes raise an enormous £405 for bibic
Elaine Davis runs Sala Yoga for all and, with the help of some of her students, this year raised £405 for bibic!
Elaine explains her reasons for raising the monies;
“bibic has always been a charity close to our hearts. When our son Callum, who has autism, was struggling with life in general (especially anxiety), we booked an assessment at bibic. They had been highly recommended to us and the two days that we spent there were some of the most valuable in gaining understanding into his needs and how to help him.
The therapist skilfully led him through many assessments – making them enjoyable and accessible for Callum. We not only learned how to help him with his anxiety, but had a much greater understanding of his strengths and areas that we needed to help him with. The comprehensive and in depth reports and recommendations were incredibly useful. Using these tools has helped him enormously and as a strapping 21 year old, he is now doing great. He continues to develop new skills, becoming increasingly independent and has a real zest for life”.
Sala Yoga provides Yoga classes for all, regardless of age, shape, sex or ability. Elaine can arrange classes or one-to-one, face to face or online, visit her website for more details.
Elaine goes on to say “With this in mind, in addition to regularly sponsoring children through bibic’s Sponsor a UK Child scheme, I like to give back to the charity as much as I can. My wonderful yoga students are always delighted to help bibic and lockdown gave us the perfect opportunity to take a class outside and do yoga for charity in the garden. I was delighted with the £405.00 we raised – even Callum joined in with some of the classes!! bibic is a wonderful charity that gives so many families hope for the future and we will be forever grateful”.
Andy Hirst, bibic General Fundraising and Marketing Officer, says “This is absolutely fantastic and I know that this amount of money will have been the result of lots of hard work. Our grateful thanks go to Elaine and her students for a job well done!”
