Wolverhampton Social Advice Club Donation

Home » News » Wolverhampton Social Advice Club Donation

Parkfields have received an extremely generous donation of £30,000 from Bob Martin and Vic Walker, who are treasurers of the Wolverhampton Social Advice Club for adults with Learning Disabilities.

Having his son, Adrian Martin, living with Jaffray Care at Parkfields since 2005, Bob has been a constant, on-going support over many years and we are truly grateful to have been awarded this sum of money to enhance the services we provide at Parkfields.

Bob and Vic have overseen the running of the club after it was first established over 40 years ago by the late Mildred Hudson, with the aim of supporting people with learning disabilities and their families. Over the years the club has offered advice and acted as a point of contact for families to come together to offer each other support. The club also raised funds and purchased two bungalows in Devon for families to enjoy holidays with their children.

The club has now disbanded and as a result the two bungalows were sold, with the money from the sales going to many local charities, including Jaffray Care.

We are delighted to say that the intention is for this money to go towards a new mini bus and also to create a therapeutic space for the service users at Parkfields to access.

Everybody wishes to say a HUGE thank you to both Bob & Vic for this fantastic, generous donation, which will help to enhance what we do.
