We were delighted to be presented with a cheque to the value of £250 from the Wymondham Golf Society, as a contribution towards a vehicle for adults with a learning difficulty using the Oak Trees Respite and Supported Living Services in Attleborough.
Outings and trips out, including going to the cinema, swimming, bowling, going to restaurants/pubs and out of town supermarkets, are thoroughly enjoyed by our guests and service users and create happy memories of their time with us.
Formed in 1974, The Wymondham Golf Society has some 60 members and holds five matches a year at different courses and three inter-club matches. John Barnard, Hon Secretary, has devised a clever way in which to raise money for charity at these events through giving out fines to members for minor ‘misdemeanours’!
Oak Trees holds a special place in the hearts of Committee Member Roger Morgan and his wife Jane. Their son James, who has Asperger’s, spends three weeks a year at the Respite Service.
A big thank you to John, Roger, Jane and the members of the Wymondham Golf Society for their kind donation which brings our vehicle fundraising total to £3,688.52.
