About Us

Hi sponsors! We are Poppy and Betty, and we are raising money for our school by taking part in a sponsored Makaton-athon over the Easter Holidays.
Every day we will learn 5 new Makaton signs and video ourselves doing it.
The reason we have chosen to do this is because we want to raise awareness for Makaton and how useful it is for the people who use it to communicate.
Poppy’s brother is 3 in April. He has speech and language delays and is non verbal. We communicate with him using Makaton at home and it really helps us to understand his needs and for him to understand us too. We feel it’s useful for everyone to learn some Makaton signs so they can communicate with people who have difficulties and help make their lives a little bit easier.
Makaton uses signs and symbols with speech to help adults and children with communication difficulties, and more information can be found at

Thank you so much for supporting us, love Poppy and Betty xx
