Thank You from TVAP

 

Over the last eighteen months, the LPTC and the Lambrook Community have raised an enormous £30,000 for our chosen charity, Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP); through Lamfest, Bonfire Night, Summer Parties, Quiz nights, Triathlons, Christmas bazaars and sponsored walks, to name but a few. Families at Lambrook have worked incredibly hard to raise funds for such a worthy cause and the TVAP would like to extend a big thank you to all.  

TVAP has been overwhelmed by the work that has taken place over the past months and has used the donations raised to make a significant difference to so many. Money raised has already helped to pay for practical things such as lighting for the main building and maintenance and renewal of playground equipment. It has also enabled TVAP to finance staff who work at the site and who provide care and advice. One of the priorities for TVAP has been meeting the very many requests for respite care hours that they offer to families whose children require 1:1 or even 2:1 trained staff ratio; an expensive exercise but the benefit to families of such a resource is immeasurable, allowing parents and carers to spend some quality time with their other children and each other.

It has also been a great honour for some of our Lambrook pupils to visit the Playground over this time, to learn more about the work that takes place there and to meet both TVAP staff and families who use the facility. 

Alec Black, Chairman of TVAP writes: 

On behalf of the Trustees thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for all the support you have given us over past 18 months. Not only have you raised the enormous sum of money and provided hours of volunteer effort, but you also provided the opportunity for us to reach another generation with our message that people with special needs deserve to have the same opportunities for fun and can learn so much in the process… We have been very impressed by the organisation, kindness and commitment of the parents whom we have been involved with and have been overwhelmed by the generosity and dynamic fundraising of you all. 
The LPTC are looking forward to announcing the new charity that Lambrook will be supporting in the next few weeks. 

Thames Valley Adventure Playground is a fantastic charity and resource based near Maidenhead which provides opportunities, advice, support and fun to children and adults with special needs and their families. For more details, please visit https://www.tvap.co.uk/.
