Super Siblings is a Crawley-based charity that supports children who have siblings with additional needs.

They provide weekly sessions to help them meet and interact with other children in similar situations.

The goal is to give them a form of respite and let them have fun in a safe and understanding environment.

The money raised by DPD will be used to buy essential sensory play equipment for children at the the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital.
