Scopes4SEN donates telescopes to organisations that support children with special educational needs and vulnerable persons, as well as home-schooling SEN families. Patrick Poitevin runs the charity and is one of the most lovely, kind and generous people you might ever be fortunate to meet.
Since the charity started in November 2015, Scopes for SEN have donated over 1300 telescopes to schools, hospitals, retreat centres, trusts, community groups and private homes. They are always open to recommendations and suggestions for who might benefit from receiving one of their telescopes.
For more information please see their official website which features an ever growing list of telescope recipients.
If you would like to support them by donating, you can do so via PayPal with monies received helping to cover the costs of sending telescopes on to new homes.
Nominating an organisation
Go Stargazing is delighted to help Scopes4SEN and their charitable endeavours by hosting the below telescope request form making it easy for you to nominate an organisation to receive a telescope.
