‘Unique’ is the UK’s only registered charity for families affected by rare chromosome disorders. They provide information and support to anyone affected and work to raise public awareness. Rare chromosome disorders involve missing, extra or rearranged genetic material on one or more of a person’s chromosomes. Many of those affected are born sick and disabled, unable to walk or talk but others only find out they are affected when they come to have children of their own. Their rarity means that information about the disorders is scarce and medical professionals may not have the knowledge or understanding to answer the many questions families have. That’s where ‘Unique’ comes in. As a small charity, Unique receives no government funding and relies heavily on the support of its members, their friends, families and colleagues, donating generously and going the extra mile to raise the funds they need to go on helping families affected by rare chromosome disorders.
Please help us to support this charity and make a difference to someone else’s life.
The sponsored silence will be held at school from 9:00 – 12:30pm. This will be a challenging activity, but we are determined to raise as much as possible for ‘Unique’.
