New vehicle boost
You can imagine our delight when the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund told us they were giving us a grant of £5,000! This will be towards the purchase of a smaller wheelchair accessible vehicle we are planning to buy next year. These vehicles are vital to what we do and they help people with disabilities to travel around independently, not just on minibuses.
It was even better news when old friend and Deputy Lieutenant of Great Manchester, Eamonn O’Neal visited us to deliver the cheque. It was great to catch up with him and show him round our new house on Fownhope Avenue.
Thanks so much to the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund for their invaluable support and for making a difference to people with learning disabilities.
