We are extremely proud to have donated to all of these charities and organisations over what has been a year that none of us will want to remember.
We hope that, in our small way, we have made a difference and will continue to do so into 2021

ZOOM MEETINGS PROVE TO BE A GREAT SUCCESS

RAYNES PARK HIGH SCHOOL ACCESS CENTRE
I would like to thank you so much for the charity funding you have sent through for the Access Centre students. The students are thrilled and excited to be able to order the Sensory and Alternative PE equipment they have chosen to support their learning and sensory needs. Many of the students with autism are currently attending school; we are running a structured timetable to support the routine and expectations that these students require in order to support their well-being during this extraordinary time.
