A centre providing unique support for people with special needs will be able to help even more young people following a boost from Maidenhead Rotary Club.
The club’s community and youth committee has made a £1,000 grant to the Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP) in Taplow, which will be used to fund activities for families with children aged under 21.
TVAP is a charity offering adventurous, therapeutic and educational play activities in a safe, caring and stimulating environment for both children and adults with all types of disability. It helps more than 30,000 people a year and has annual running costs of £350,000, just five per cent of which comes from local authority grants.
Community and youth committee chairman Jim Howles said: “Because of Covid we have not been able to support Maidenhead’s youth as we would normally. It was decided we should make this donation in lieu of other activities.
“As the donation comes from our youth charity budget we have asked that the money is used to assist families with younger children at TVAP.”
Reama Shearman, TVAP’s engagement manager, said: “I want to say a heartfelt thank-you. The support of all at Maidenhead Rotary Club is much appreciated.”
