REEDHAM is CELEBRATING!
Reedham Children's Trust is celebrating after receiving a £2,500 gift from The Patron's Fund, the charitable fund set up to acknowledge the work of the charitable organisations for which Her Majesty, The Queen acts as a Patron, on the occasion of her 90th birthday.
Around £750,000 is available to distribute between nearly 300 charities, who benefit from Her Majesty's Patronage, and other organisations in the UK and the Commonwealth. The Fund received generous donations from a range of supporters; including individual donors, businesses, schools, community groups and the proceeds from The Patron's Lunch, the event on the Mall last June.
Most of the families we work with are struggling to care for their children due to disability or long term mental or physical ill health; every penny from this gift will go directly towards transforming the lives of vulnerable children.
Sir Stuart Etherington, Chair of The Board of Trustees for The Patron's Fund, said:
'The Patron's Fund is very pleased to be able to support Reedham Children's Trust with its valuable work. Reedham is among hundreds of organisations for which The Queen acts as a Patron, which between them make a difference to causes and communities in the UK and throughout the Commonwealth.'
