The Countess of Wessex visits Parenting Particular Youngsters in Studying
Children’s faces lit up with “pure delight” when the Countess of Wessex visited a Reading charity for their 15th anniversary.
Her Royal Highness met with families associated with Parenting Special Children, which supports parents with kids who have special needs.
CEO Ruth Pearse said it was an honor to welcome Countess Sophie, alongside Reading Borough Mayor Rachel Eden and Deputy Mayor Ayo Sokale on Wednesday (March 2).
“Our parents and carers appreciated your insight into the challenges and joys that they faced being parents of children with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND),” said Ms Pearse “I know that everyone appreciated the time, attention and kindness shown to them.

The Countess played Uno with the children, engaged in coloring activities and helped them make a mosaic.
Since its inception the charity has supported more than 10,000 families.
