Hello Jemima! It was probably about 3 years ago when we last sang together with the byob choir. I recognised you and Cali in a recent gympanzees post, which linked me to this incredible project you and Cody have launched. Absolutely amazing. Enjoy your family time in Iris and spreading camping joy to other families too. Natalie xx

Hi Jemima. Ever since I read your first announcement of the crowd-finder on Facebook I hear the owls with different ears, feel the fresh morning air with renewed joy. So much we take for granted……. I sincerely hope you can enjoy days and night out as a family. May it take you to wonderful places.

What an incredible thing you’re doing! I hope that you and many other families will be able to enjoy life on the road with Iris. It’s going to make such a huge difference to so many lives. ❤️ Hope the refurb goes well & all the best with it!

This is such an amazing project! As a fellow SEN parent in Bristol I hope we will be able to use it in the future.

Well done for reaching and beating your target! We have an (unadapted) van that we can take our son with complex needs away in or for days out. It’s not always easy but it’s important to be able to normal things together. It’s great that you are sharing this opportunity with other families. X
