Shelagh Brownlow (Chartered Accountant) organised this fund raiser in support of her daughter’s plans to be part of an expedition to Ecuador and the Galapagos Isle.
Her daughter Alice has been diagnosed Aspergers Syndrome (AS). The expedition, organised by Camp International, was chosen by Alice as part of her ‘Self help therapy’. It is her wish to demonstrate that despite her condition, she can still achieve her goals and ambitions. On her return she plans to share her experiences with as many people as possible. Her aim is to challenge attitudes and encourage others with similar conditions to pursue their dreams.
Alice gave a well delivered presentation covering the aims of the expedition an explanation of her condition. She also shared some of the everyday challenges she faces. On the evidence presented, I feel sure Alice will achieve all she sets out to.
Alice also works as a volunteer helper with ‘The Alltogether Club’. Lizzy Toms briefly outlined the work of this special local charity. The AllTogether Social Trust is a charity for children and young adults with disabilities, their families and carers. The Charity is based in Darwen.
Tony Morgan (Superfast Broadband) overcame technical challenges to share the aims and objectives of the Governments initiative to upgrade the Broadband connectivity and Download speeds in Lancashire. The improvements will boost the local economy by creating around 2,500 jobs and protecting more than 1,200 jobs over the next few years. The county’s enterprise zones are a key priority as fibre broadband will help local businesses to become more competitive.
Paul Lewis (Polygon financial Ltd.) Shared his ‘Top Ten’ Financial tips which were simple, basic and in some instances common sense ideas and all easy to initiate. I scanned the room to see if anyone else was as captivated (or guilty) as me – We all were. With each tip Paul gave practical examples and case studies.
Shelagh thanked everyone for supporting and closed the meeting. We retired to the cake stall for more informal networking.
