A massive thank you to Worthing Lions Club who donated an amazing £2000 to our Ashdown Siblings service which offers sessions for siblings of our children with disabilities.
As part of tradition, the club gives a substantial amount of money for a President’s award at the end of their tenure and past President, Marian Down chose Ashdown Siblings.
She said, “I chose Ashdown House Siblings as I have a disabled younger brother and I am personally aware of the toll that can take on so called normal family life. I wanted the siblings to have some quality time and I am so pleased Guild Care offer this much needed service to them.”
The money will go towards either trips out for the siblings group or extra play equipment for the children. Marian and current President John Hollington presented the cheque to Guild Care CEO Suzanne Millard and the Ashdown Siblings group who also enjoyed a visit from The Worthing Lion himself, kindly brought to life by Tony Carter🦁🎉
