BLADON 'GO ORANGE ' FOR PRADER-WI LL I SYNDROME ASSOCIAT ION
Prader-Willi Syndrome is a rare genetic condition where babies are born with poor muscle tone, have delayed physical and emotional development, learning difficulties and an overwhelming, insatiable appetite. There is no cure for this life-long condition. To prevent morbid obesity, people with PWS need to keep to a very low calorie diet, approximately about two thirds of that required by the general population and they will need to follow this throughout their lives.
This academic year Bladon House School are supporting the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association UK as one of our charities of the year. A number of our young people have Prader-Willi Syndrome and we are working alongside the charity to raise money and awareness. As this month is Prader-Willi Awareness Month we are taking part in the international ‘Go Orange’ fundraising campaign. Students and staff were encouraged to come dressed in Orange on Friday 24th May 2019. Special t-shirts for the event were ordered, with proceeds from the sale going to the charity.
