Dear John, Jean & Claire,
It was lovely to see you at Jonquil on Tuesday, for the presentation of the magnificent cheque which will be used for the Sensory Room project.
I was absolutely overwhelmed to receive the donation, along with the interim donation you so kindly gave us last November. You have helped so much to realise a dream project I had two years ago – to refurbish the Sensory Room. Thank you so much for your interest and support.
We are in a position now to go ahead and order some expensive equipment,as the flooring has been ordered. It is really exciting to see the room developing. I am pleased that you have seen ‘the before’ to be followed by ‘the after’ in mid April; when we shall have our grand opening-to which you will get an invite.
All the equipment will be chosen to help the individual needs of the residents, to enhance their learning and social skills. Staff will be trained in all aspects of its use to achieve maximum benefit for the most able to the least able person. There is great anticipation at Jonquil and moreover, enthusiasm from all who work there.
A big thank you once more for choosing us as your ‘Charity of the Year’. We feel especially privileged as there are so many other worth charities requesting assistance. Thank you, too, for providing us with the fliers, which have been so useful during our fund-raising events.
With very best wishes
Larry Shaw (Fund-Raising Committee)
