Hull charity Special Stars Foundation is asking for your help to expand their support for disabled children in Hull and East Yorkshire, writes Jools Oughtibridge.
They provide a range of services to help to improve the lives of people living with a disability and their immediate families.
The charity is looking for votes from the general public to help them access additional funding from the Aviva Community Fund to expand their work with the Makaton language.
Makaton is a sign based language aimed at people with communication difficulties in order for them to engage with their families and other people with similar needs.
Special Stars Foundation chair of trustees and founder Natalie Barnes hopes that the people of Hull and East Yorkshire can give their support so that the charity can provide a range of local Makaton courses to families and professionals working with children.
The charity is asking the public to help them climb the leaderboard on the Hull section of the Aviva Community Fund by giving their votes before the polls close on 1 November 2017.
Ms Barnes said without the funding the charity would not be able to provide these courses to the people of Hull and East Yorkshire.
