Tingdene Park Homes & Holiday Lodges announce that they are to support The Spectrum Club, a local charity aiding autistic children in Northamptonshire, with a donation of £2,000. The organisation was recommended to Tingdene by employee Marcus Phillpotts, who has been involved with the charity for some time.
Meeting with Laura Price, Sarah R-U Blake and Gemma Gunn from the Club’s committee, the team at Tingdene were delighted to learn more about the important work the charity does for young people throughout the county – and how much they mean to thousands of families in the local area.
The Spectrum Club has grown from a weekend club facility for autistic children and their families into a hugely popular resource offering regular private events – ranging from days out at local activity centres to specially-arranged cinema trips – as well as a beacon of online support and advice for parents via social media. At present, over 1400 parents regularly support each other through the Club’s official Facebook page.
A cheque for £2,000 was presented to The Spectrum Club by Simon Iliffe, Tingdene’s Human Resources Manager. “We chose The Spectrum Club to provide support to in the form of a donation this year as we feel it is an important and incredibly worthwhile local cause benefiting autistic children,” Mr Iliffe advised.
Sarah R-U Blake, in receipt of the donation, confirmed that the funding will be used in aiding the organisation of many more safe, fun events in future – with further emphasis that parents and carers will be able to ‘relax without judgment’.
The Spectrum Club is available for families affected by autism throughout Northamptonshire who are interested in finding fun days out and online advice via social media – a worthwhile cause that Tingdene is proud to support.
