£1500 for the William Merritt Disability Learning Centre

After almost two and a half years since they initially visited, St Wilfrid Lodge were delighted to welcome back General Manager David Blythe and Paediatric Occupational Therapist Sophie Thomson to be presented with a cheque for £1500 raised as part of the Master’s Charity. They had first visited in May 2019 to talk to us about the history and work of the Centre at our Supper Night.

The Centre is one of the two charities chosen as the ‘Master’s Charities’ that year together with the Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Fund. Funds were raised throughout the year, primarily at our numerous social events. Funds were raised specifically to support children and young people who use the Centre but sadly the Covid-19 pandemic delayed everything!

Happily, thanks to the generosity of Lodge members, their wives, partners, families and friends, the Centre is now able to significantly enrich it’s Toy Library for children and young people. David and Sophie also told us about the exciting plans to secure a specially designed Mobile Toy Library with which they can reach out to communities in and around Leeds and also across Yorkshire and the North of England.
