About Say Aphasia

Say Aphasia is a UK based charity that supports people with aphasia and their families and carers.

We run a supportive drop-in group where people with aphasia can get together, chat, make friends and practise their communication skills with like-minded people.

Ellie & Andy Hovey

Thank you for taking the time to visit our fund raising page. We’re raising money for my dad. To contribute, show recognition and provide financial backing to the charity that has provided him with ongoing support, help and guidance. My Dad has been attending Say Aphasia since he finished his 121 speech therapy. Not only has he met a wonderful bunch of people, it also motivates him to get out and be social. Without this group providing support and friendships I doubt my dad would have continued to improve as well. But more importantly he’s met people who suffer the same cruel condition, which makes him not feel so alone, and really helps him get on with his life. My Dad suffered a major seizure in 2016 and was diagnosed with multiple brain tumours. He has undergone an immense journey, which at times I thought he wouldn’t survive. He had major brain surgery removing a number of tumours, some that had adhered to his brain. The operation left my dad with challenging side effects that effects his everyday life. The main one being his speech. There is not a day that goes by where I don't feel proud of him. The strength and determination he shows on a daily basis is incredible. He battles through the bad days and gets impatient and frustrated with the pace of his improvements, but he never gives up. He is constantly challenging himself to improve to return to his old self, even when it’s really hard or he feels too tired to apply himself. To this day my Dad is still making improvements that he doesn’t always recognise, partly because he’s striving for perfection. He still manages to appear positive, plucks out ‘Dad jokes’ and I love hearing him reading stories and interacting with our son. My dad’s journey has been life changing and is on-going. We’re taking part in the Brighton half marathon to raise money and awareness for a poorly funded cause. I know it’s a big ask but if you have something small that you could contribute, you would be helping a great Sussex based charity that has directly helped my family on our continuous journey. Thank you Ellie and Andy Hovey

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
