Over 100 members enjoyed a 60s and 70s music night in May at Phyllis Court Club and raised £1666 for local charity, Camp Mohawk.
The event was organised by the Charity Action Group at the Club and cheque was presented to Annabel Hill, Fundraiser at Camp Mohawk yesterday (Wednesday).
Camp Mohawk is a multi-functional day centre for children with special needs, set in 5 acres of beautiful countryside, just outside Wargrave. Throughout the year the centre provides a range of activities, facilities and natural space to encourage children with a variety of special needs to play, socialise and learn in a secure and caring environment.
Annabel said, “Thank you, it’s a stupendous amount of money. We will put the money towards our four Christmas parties we’re planning for families. The parties will cater for the needs of the children and will be for the whole family to enjoy and create memories. Many miss out on going to mainstream events. Finding accessible events is really hard for families. You’ve had fun raising the money and the children will definitely have fun at their own parties.”
Diana Pearman, Chair of the Charity Action Group said, “We had a really fun night with Barry Owen entertaining us again with music from the era. It was a very successful evening with the money raised for Camp Mohawk through ticket sales and a raffle. We are very happy to hear that the money will be spent on providing fun Christmas activities for the young people and their families. It seems entirely appropriate.”
