 Hidden Needs Trust Pre Christmas Update 2020,

 A personal message from Rachel Goodfellow, Hidden Needs Trust Founder, Chair of Trustees and Fundraiser.

 How 2020 has flown by! A year ago I was running all over the two counties delivering by hand free tickets for the 2020 concert at The Octagon Theatre Yeovil to Carers, Young Adults with   Learning Disabilities, Families with Special Educational Needs Children, and to those attending the Specialist Educational Providers. How little did I know that the Just Take That Tribute Concert   on January 11th was going to be my last fundraise for the year, but at least HNT raise a whopping £9,728.  More importantly, the concert was a huge success; a really inclusive event whereby   a large percentage of the audience had some degree of additional needs, were carers or specialist teachers. Do visit the page for more details and some of the photographs!
