Double donation

Henley Rotary Club has donated £500 to Camp Mohawk, the activities centre for children with special needs near Wargrave. The money will go towards a new boiler for the swimming pool. The cheque was presented (right) to centre manager Chris Wilcox by club president John Grout (far right) and Rotarian Sam Lamden, who were then given a tour.

Mr Wilcox said: “It was such a pleasure showing Sam and John around, particularly since Sam had last been up here in the late Nineties and so much has changed since then. I think he was quite taken aback!” Meanwhile, a quiz hosted by Reading solicitors Blandy & Blandy raised £4,500 for Camp Mohawk and Younger People with Dementia (Berkshire West). Teams from 22 Thames Valley firms took part. The quiz was won by Clydesdale (above with Manisha Bhula and Brenda Long, of Blandy & Blandy) followed by Harrisons and RBS. The winning team was invited to nominate a charity to receive a £100 donation and selected the two new charities that Blandy & Blandy will be supporting from July 1, Daisy’s Dream and Reading Samaritans.

There was also a raffle. Chairman Brenda Long said: “Thank you to our team and to the 21 firms who joined us for a highly enjoyable evening.” Mr Wilcox said: “Blandy & Blandy’s support over the last two years has enabled us to fund capital projects such as our new music room and pay the running costs for our youth group work for children with high-functioning autism.”
