I would just like to say I think it’s a wonderful organisation doing amazing work.
Volunteering for Lakers has done more for me than I for them.
Volunteering is a great way to make friends and makes you feel happier.
Lakers is a fabulous organisation which provides vital social, physical and cultural activities foe or children and adults with special needs a positive and nurturing environment. The staff and volunteer are professional and fun.
Lakers has been a life changing experience for my son. He has gone from having very little to do to fill his day to having a jam packed weekend of activities. Staff are amazing and very welcoming. I would consider this service a necessity within the community.
Just a quick note to say that my daughter would be lost without this club, she absolutely adore all the staff whom I have to say are an amazing group of people I really appreciate all the work they do not just for my daughter but all the members.
