Funding News


We have received £500 from W A Cadbury Charitable Trust, as well as £500.00 from The Grimmitt Trust this is on top of the £1000.00 given by Invacore Limited  for additional transport for our Tuesday and Thursday group meetings.

On behalf of the Management Committee/Trustees and more importantly out members I would like to say a big  “THANK YOU” 

It takes a lot of transport to get the families together for T.E.D.S events and this money will make things runs more smoothly for everybody. This will help us with our Tuesday and Thursday groups.  Above all else it means people can spend more time together.

We are going to be working closely together with Shencare Community Transport.  (www.shencare.org.uk) to do this on a Tuesday and Thursdays we use Kings Norton Coaches.

All the money will be used to enable
