You may remember that my daughter Ailsa, who has Cerebral Palsy, raised over £1300 last year for British Ukrainian Aid when she took part in Parallel Windsor, an inclusive sporting event for people with special needs, and I wrote a small piece about it which is on the Lodge Website: https://alwarestoch.co.uk/2023/08/16/supporting-ukraine/

This year she intends to take part in the same event on July 7, and this year she is hoping to raise money for a charity called KIDS.  The charity provides support for children with disabilities of all types, and their families, paying particular attention to siblings who are thrust into the role of “Young Carer”.

KIDS used to have a centre in Salterns Lane in Fareham (close to where Newgate Lane merges into Gosport Road), and both Ailsa and her younger brother were directly supported by the centre when they were younger, and as a family we received an enormous amount of help and support.  Unfortunately, this centre is now closed, but the charity itself continues to provide support across the whole country, and as Ailsa says on her Just Giving page, it is a charity close to all our hearts.  Please have a look at the various links I have attached, and if you feel you can help, please do…even a small amount will be very gratefully received!

Thank you very much!
