Following Lamb's successful campaign to help Incisive Media promote their Christmas Ball and the work for their chosen charity; The Children's Trust, Lamb has offered its help the charity in an effort to help promote the fine work they undertake.
The Children's Trust is this year marking its 25th anniversary in providing education, therapy and rehabilitation to children with multiple disabilities, complex health issues and acquired brain injury. The support is provided at a dedicated centre located at Tadworth in Surrey. Up to 70 children can be cared for at any one time and during the course of the year it will help around 250 children. Stays at Tadworth can range from a few days to give parents respite, up to permanent residency from birth to adulthood.
Lamb were invited to visit the centre and witness first hand the work that is done. The sheer scale of what is done there is astonishing. It covers a site of many acres and has facilities to house, educate, rehabilitate, provide primary medical care and entertain. The staff to child ratio is almost 6 to 1, with there being around 400 staff. The levels of support are extraordinarily close and intensive. It is quite mind-blowing to then think about how much it costs to provide this outlet and how it benefits so many national institutions such as the NHS and Local Education Authorities.
If anyone has doubt about its worth though, then to see the improvements in the quality of life of the children and the success stories that it brings is inspiring and you soon come to realise the great work that is being done. This is why Lamb has offered to help in supporting their fundraising activities and to provide whatever practical help we are able.
