The Friends of The Children's Trust

The Friends of The Children's Trust are our longest-running supporter group and we are very grateful for their support.  The Friends of The Children's Trust, themselves a charity, raise money to enhance the lives of the children here at The Children's Trust. Their aim is to spread awareness of the crucial work of The Children's Trust and to raise money from the wide range of events that they run each year. Last year they raised over £15,000 in support of our work and they are ambitious to raise even more this year.  The funds the Friends have raised have been used to buy specially equipped vehicles to transport the children on medical and social outings, a trampoline to help with physiotherapy sessions and two defibrillators for emergency resuscitation. They have also funded educational outings and summer trips and a special present at Christmas time for each child.  If you are interested in joining the Friends, please telephone Gerry on 01737 812 655 or Vicky on 01737 814 714 Forthcoming Friends events, which are held at Tadworth Court unless stated otherwise, are:
