Congratulations on responding so positively to a difficult year. Trustees are pleased to hear that the Trust have managed to provide day adventures for families with disabled children. We know that residential visits and the ‘Bendrigg Buzz’ will be even more appreciated when they can safely resume.
Trustees would like to thank the London Philharmonic Orchestra for the impressive work recorded in their Newsletter, which showed just how adaptable they had to be – and were – in times of crisis. We are pleased to support the costs of delivering the 2020/21 LPO Open Sound Ensemble, the Orchestra’s out of school inclusive music project.
To continue the support of The Yellow Submarine residential holidays for 11-18 year olds who have learning disabilities and autism. We hope these holidays can take place this next year and we are sure the young people will have lots of fun and gain confidence in a different environment.
Trustees are pleased to be able to assist NANSA to cover the shortfall in funding for the next financial year for the All Aboard programme which provides families of children with disabilities and /or special educational needs with a wide range of support. NANSA learned of the Trust during a visit to Norwich Quaker Meeting House.
Trustees wish to support The Woodland Centre Trust with the management costs of their outdoor facilities for use by groups of children from Special Schools during term-time. We appreciated reading a letter of support from a Quaker supporter of their work.
The wheelchair-friendly minibus that we supported last year is now in service to deliver sports packs and activity packs during this Covid-19 lockdown period, to clients who would normally use the Centre We would like to support this new temporary but expensive programme this year.
