Flower Lane staff, parents and carers work hard throughout the year on fundraising, through fairs, raffles and other events. Some of the money raised, by Flower Lane Action Group, contributes towards trips for service users – which this year arrived just in time for the heat wave!

This year, most of the service users at Flower Lane have got to go on a trip to one of the following Southend, Brighton, Whipsnade Zoo and a canal trip to Little Venice.

Parents of one of  the service users are especially grateful for the positive effect on their child that trips like these have:

“We would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone involved with the boat trip outing that John went on last Tuesday.

“He came home very excited and stimulated by the experience and has been talking a lot about it ever since. Thanks so much from parents who really appreciate all the hard work of the staff.”
