Donation to Disability Initiative

2018 04 Installation

At the Camberley Lodge Ladies’ Festival in 2018,  Pam Barclay won the star prize of a week’s holiday in the villa  of Kevin McSorley and his wife Carmel  in Nerja Spain.  The Barclays decided to take their whole extended family the following year and had a great time.  They were so grateful that they felt that they would like to make a donation to Kevin and Carmel’s charity of choice – Disability Initiative.

We invited Hugh and Pam to present the cheque themselves but they wanted to do it “without any fuss,” so this was delegated!

The photographs show Lucy Brown Chief Executive of Disability Initiative, a Camberley based charity, with several individuals receiving DI’s invaluable support, together with W.Bro. David Matthews of Camberley Lodge who presented the cheque.

DI is an established charity that specialises in the provision of services to adults with complex physical disabilities and acquired brain injury.
