This Spring, the Broadway Ladies Group is once again organising a charity coffee morning, having raised £1,200 last year.
This year, we are serving coffee and scones, combined with various stalls and raffles, on Saturday 5th May in Broadway Methodist Church Hall from 10 am until 12 noon. Entrance is just £1.50 to include coffee, tea or juice with a delicious scone, made by members.
The charity we have voted to support this year is The Percy Hedley Foundation – a practical local charity supporting disabled children, young people and adults, offering them a wide range of high quality services. These include a nursery, Percy Hedley School and Northern Counties School, Northern Counties College, Percy Hedley Sports Academy, an employability service and a range of innovative day and residential services for adults.
The purpose of Percy Hedley Foundation is to promote the rights, needs and aspirations of disabled people. The charity is recognised nationally and internationally as leading the way in the provision of specialist, quality services for disabled people with cerebral palsy, sensory impairments, communication impairments and complex learning and therapeutic needs.
The positive philosophy “Just think what’s possible” underpins how they work and reflects their values of respect for individual aspirations, equality of opportunities for all people and commitments to excellence and improvement.
Your support really does make a difference. It makes it possible for many disabled children and adults to reach their potential and lead full and active lives – so please come along for a coffee with friends and have an enjoyable morning at the same time as giving your support to such a worthwhile cause. We really need the support of generous local people to achieve our goals.
