A CHARITY for youngsters with disabilities has said a big “thank you” to supporters — but also called for fund-raising efforts to continue.
Westhill-based SensationALL received a £5,000 grant from the NHS Grampian Endowment Fund that will go towards its Stay and Play programme.
Other monies were generated by volunteers through a range of activities and provided by businesses.
The drive is to continue when volunteer Sharon Blair runs in the Edinburgh Marathon later this month.
SenstionALL, based at the Old Schoolhouse in Westhill Drive, stressed the need to keep supporting its work.
A spokeswoman said: “We need the support of our local community, and our local businesses behind us in order to keep the Old School House operational as a community asset and a sustainable entity.”
The charity specialises in providing a range of subsidised support services for children, young adults with multiple support needs or disabilities and their families. It also provides training and consultation to families, carers, professionals and other organisations
There will be an Information Meeting on Wednesday May 13 at the Old School House from 4.30 to 5.30 pm.
To discuss your child’s eligibility, please contact Susan Strachan or Adele Lindsay on (01224) 746699 (Monday-Thursday).
On Wednesday June 10, from 9.30am-12.30pm and 6.30pm-8.30pm, there will be a meeting to discuss retaining the Old Schoolhouse as a community facility.
SensationALL is also looking to employ a temporary part-time volunteer coordinator.
