Following on from a recent call for charity nominations for HSC to support, we are pleased to announce that until December 2018, we will be supporting two local charities; Up on Downs and Angels.
Both charities are local, work with children and also support athletes and their families within our club.
Nominated by the family of Mark Evens – Competitive swimmer
Mark and his family have been actively involved with Up on Downs since the group was set up in 2006. The organisation is the Hertfordshire Down's Syndrome family support charity.
Nominated by the family of Andrew Thomson – Water polo player
Angels is a parent led voluntary organisation and Registered Charity set up in North Hertfordshire to support parents and carers of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and/or Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).In the past Angels helped Andrew’s family apply for a Statement and were the listening ears when life was both tough and challenging for them. They offered advice and support which enabled them as a family to move forwards
