I have been to a few events at Minstead Lodge and totally fell in love with it – the building, location, grounds are just stunning and I would always jump at the chance to go to any event there. Then finding out more about the worthwhile work that the Trust does supporting people with learning disabilities and meeting various people from the trust through networking, felt that it was a really worthwhile charity to support and possibly one that gets overlooked in favour of more high profile local charities or ones with more ahhh factor. The dedication and passion with which everyone there shows is inspiring and something I’m proud to be able to support in any small way.’
