27 Oct Tea and Tour Tadworth
On Monday the 21st October Two of Surrey’s intrepid charity team attended The Children’s Trust at Tadworth for the “Cream Tea and Tour” day.
Paul Wicking, the Royal Arch Provincial Grand Charity Steward and Jack Kinch, one of the Charity Liaison Officers, without thought to their waistlines and tempted by the offer of a free cream tea, were treated to an informative and very inspirational tour of the Trust and met some of the dedicated staff.
The Trust cares for up to 60 residents at any one time, with up to 100 children on-site at the school during the day, all of whom are children from 0-18yrs that have an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
We were given a very informative talk highlighting some of the successful work that they do at the Trust to re-educate and rehabilitate their children who have suffered an ABI.
The CEO of the Trust, Dalton Leong, told how the Trust needed to raise a budget of £28,000,000 a year to operate and £8,000,000 of that comes from voluntary donations, and thanked Surrey Masons for their continued support.
One of their current projects is to refurbish a music room and donations from Surrey Chapters would assist in the purchase of new musical equipment that would help to enrich the children’s lives. Any donations should be made via the Surrey for Surrey fund so that the funds can be earmarked for this project.
