Jubilee House Care Trust AGM Press Release
Local Charity Jubilee House Care Trust held its first AGM under its new Chief Executive Alan Clarke.
He addressed a lively audience on the 19th November at Hatfield Sport and Social Club with contributions from Welwyn and Hatfield Mayor Lynn Sparks, Monks Walk School Dragon’s Apprentices, fundraisers Tour De Lard and Trustees.
“A fantastic charity, with fantastic service users and fantastic staff, we have lots of challenges equally matched by lots of opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of adults and children with learning disabilities living in our community”
Members of the Tour de Lard fundraising team relived their expedition experiences in three wheeled vehicles on the highest mountain roads in Europe, taking a bow and receiving the thanks of Alan, Trustees and staff for raising an amazing £25,000 for the charity.
Young Entrepreneurs from Monks Walk School attended with Dragon, Huw Thomas of the best of Welwyn and Hatfield, to talk about their Dragons Apprentice business ideas to reach the £1000 fundraising target to win the competition. A Black tie dinner, Bingo evening and a school Krispy Kreme donut scheme are among the entrepreneurial ideas the students are using to raise money for the charity.
Jubilee House Care Trust is a local charity providing Learning Disability support in Hertfordshire and North London. Its hub in Welwyn Garden City provides high quality care to children and adults with moderate to severe learning disabilities. Its short break centre gives children the opportunity to have fun, make new friends and have a break from everyday life to recharge, easing the pressure on parents and carers enabling them to also have a break. The refurbished centre is fully equipped with soft play rooms, a sensory room, smart board and sensory garden. Highly skilled staff provide individual support to enable children to access activities in the local community that a child without additional needs would take for granted, for example scouts, bowling, or falconry. At the popular after school club children choose from a range of group activities like dancing, crazy golf or cooking, it is so successful it has a waiting list. The charity also supports adults with moderate to severe learning disabilities with a work experience programme, fully equipped residential care, Short Breaks and individual plans for supported living.
Fundraiser Chris Hill from Tour de Lard II said,
“A mixture of fun and some tense moments there and back. We created a lot of smiles at and memories of the vehicles. Most of all, a result beyond our expectations. The good it can do, is our best reward.
