Henley Lions Club presented a cheque for £1,000 to the Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children to fund their “Moments to Remember” programme. This is the fourth consecutive year that Henley Lions have funded this project. The scheme, originally called A Day to Remember, was the idea of Lion, Ian Forster who proposed that they could bring the British seaside to the Chiltern Centre for the young people and their families to enjoy. That was a huge success and was enjoyed by everyone who took part. This has since been transformed by Pamela Lee of the centre into Moments to Remember which take place throughout the year and which are equally enjoyed by young people, their families and staff. Accepting the cheque on behalf of the centre was Paul Barrett, Chairman of Trustees.
Paul Barrett, Chair of Chiltern Centre Trustees said, “The Henley Lions are such great supporters of the Centre and the Day to Remember- now transformed into “Moments to Remember” does bring much happiness to our young people, especially those with autism, by enabling us to finance experiences for them they might not otherwise receive. We are very grateful to the Lions who continue to make this happen.”
