A two-day challenge to tidy the gardens and to decorate the bedrooms at the respite centre at White Lodge Centre in Chertsey. 25 team members volunteered to help and rolled up their sleeves to transform 6 bedrooms into freshly painted heavens for the children. Treetops garden was given a facelift with weeding and cutting back overgrown areas as a priority. This was finished off with a bulb planting scheme that will give the children, carers and staff something to look forward to as the weather changes.
White Lodge Centre is a hidden oasis that supports disability from across Surrey and the surrounding areas. Treetops is just one of the many essential services at the centre and provides short breaks for children and young people up to the age of 18 that have profound neurological, physical and behavioural disabilities. Not only does the service provide parents with essential respite but the dedicated staff lay on many activities that are centred around maximising the children’s abilities as well as developing their experiences in the community.
Philip Munk, Partner, TWP said:
“We are always looking for ways to help White Lodge and my colleagues were delighted to help and support their great work. Our voluntary work is tremendously rewarding and we hope the children and young people enjoy using the refreshed centre.”
