Seven year old Faith raises £120 for life-limited and disabled children
Seven year old Faith Yarde from Buckinghamshire has raised £120 for Lifelites to give life-limited and disabled children the possibility to play too. Especially during difficult times, playing is vital for children and helps them escape the confines of their condition for a while.
Faith likes spending time with her family, playing games, and boxing. Like many children her age, she loves playing Minecraft, because as she says “it gives you knowledge, you can build and create, and even ride horses, which is really fun.”
When Faith heard about Lifelites’ new Games Day campaign – playing games so that life-limited and disabled children can play games using Lifelites’ life-changing technology – she knew she had to do something. Faith asked her family to help her raise £120 with the help of a WhatsApp video to her Family Group chat where she spoke about why gaming was so important for all children.
The Lifelites team was so grateful for Faith’s efforts that we sent her a framed Gamer for Good certificate. Faith will take the certificate to school to show her classmates why the Lifelites Games Day campaign is so important for life-limited and disabled children in Buckinghamshire using hospice services.
Faith says that this is just the start of her fundraising activities. She will be organising a sponsored silence for the life-limited and disabled children Lifelites supports, many of whom are unable to speak.
