Tudor Squares Xmas Card Charity
Every year instead of sending Christmas cards to one another Tudor squares members make a donation to support a charity.
This year we will be donating to the Waterside Centre in Kings Langley which provides activties for local folk.
Most of those who attend Waterside are funded by Herts County Council, others may pay through direct payments or via their living service. They come from a large area, from Tring to Watford and St. Albans; and from a variety of settings, living at home with family, in residential care, supported living or independently in the community.
Some individuals have additional needs including epilepsy, autism, physical disabilities, sensory impairments or mental health disorders
Please give your donations to your rep, As the mainstream’s last night is the 5th December please bring your donation to the party.
