The Surrey County Councillors from the Epsom and Ewell area awarded a grant from their local allowances so that The Sunnybank Trust could purchase much needed computers and office equipment. The equipment will allow the trust to continue to grow and support its 250 members with a learning disability.
County Councillor Eber Kington, visiting the Kites Social Club, said 'I am delighted to support Sunnybank. It is a wonderful charity which helps to reduce isolation and improve the lives of those with a learning disability in our community.'
This year, The Sunnybank Trust celebrates 30 years of offering friendship to those with a learning disability in Epsom and Ewell and surrounding areas.
With a small, part-time staff and nearly 150 volunteers, The Sunnybank Trust operates a weekly social club (Kites Club), which also has a vibrant Drama Group, a friendship scheme with 130 friends including pen friends and an advocacy service, which helps those with a learning disability, who have problems in areas such as health, safeguarding, housing and finances, get heard.
Information: The Sunnybank Trust is based in Epsom and helps people with learning disabilities live fuller lives and enable them to have more control over decisions that affect them.
