We respond to requests for help with household items, clothing and equipment and typically involve one-off contributions towards their purchase. Examples include:
- Food vouchers
- Stair gates
- School uniforms
- Washing machines
Requests should be made via social workers or health visitors or a West Berkshire Council support team. They should be emailed to [email protected]
We also support appeals for specialised equipment and, where the cost is high, combine with other local clubs to find the funding needed. We have helped to fund specialised wheelchairs and a trike for children and a motability scooter for a local disabled gentleman.
