We posted the above photo plus some background details before Christmas.
Mike has now sent us this follow-up infomation:
Two local charities have received a welcome boost from the Camberley 41 Club. Club representatives presented a cheque for £1,787 to students and staff at Parity for Disability’s new day service in Mytchett on Thursday 26th February 2015, and later that day presented a cheque for £1790 to a group of clients of Surrey Young Carers.
The monies were part of a total of £7351 raised at several collections in Surrey Heath over Christmas and divided amongst four charities. Camberley Care and 4th Camberley Scouts also received cheques for £1787.
The day service of Parity for Disabilty provides trained, caring staff to support people with profound disabilities enabling them to continue learning, achieving and accessing a range of activities. They plan frequent trips out and about using the charity’s fleet of minibuses, and access vital physio and speech therapies.
Surrey Young Carers provide respite, support and social events for young people who are the principal carers of a parent, relative or sibling unable to care for themselves. These young people face an onerous daily workload and immense responsibilities. Staff at Surrey Young Carers are able to support them with counselling, advice, respite days, experience sharing, and some social functions to lighten their load.
