The Special Day of Flying Charity

Special Day Flying Weston Lucan

Local woman Claudia Geeling is Mum to 4 beautiful children with Autism and Claudia will be doing a charity fundraiser for The Special Day of Flying Charity all the way up until Christmas Day. Claudia commented “I’ll be dressing up in Mega Christmas attire everywhere I go to raise much needed funds and raise awareness for this amazing charity. Be it the supermarket, the petrol station, school runs, doctors appointments to putting out my bins the Christmas attire will be on each and every morning until I go to bed. There will be many, many pictures along the way showing me do this everyday”. 

The local Mum has been fundraising for some time, Claudia added “I’ve done the Mrs Brown 5k walk and flight, the Rapunzel hair growing with the big chop with a mega raffle, bake sales etc. This year it will be the mega Christmas attire in November and December. I’m sure there will be many embarrassing and awkward moments along the way especially in November but it’s all for a good cause for the special flyers”. 

All funds raised this November and December will go towards activities and entertainment for the many children with disabilities and their families to make the day as magical as possible for them. Evert cent raised will go towards the day. 

Claudia concluded “I’m a mum to four beautiful children on the autism spectrum. As parents / families of children with special needs, we don’t get many days of pure acceptance, love and fun. A day of laughter and smiles where the skies above us are filled with pure love, a day that from the ground to the tip top of the sky is filled with acceptance. If you could sponsor in anyway even a €1 or €2 I would be very grateful or help spread awareness of my challenge”.
