Many thanks to all those who have helped make the Therapy Centre a reality.
A year ago the centre was little more than an idea. Camphill Estates' Council, the company responsible for capital development for the local Camphill communities, agreed to fund the project and requested that the parents' and friends' group would raise £100,000 towards the project as the Council had a number of other projects in the pipeline.
We set about the task earnestly and were helped early on when the Wooden Spoon charity agreed to donate £50,000 to the project. Next came Jack Stewart, a final-year pupil, who decided to dye his hair mahogany for the cause and raised more than £750 by his creativity.
Other people who used their creativity were Katy Wood, a sister of one of our pupils, who sky-dived and raised £700, and Jane Riach, one of our mothers, who raised just over £4,100 by climbing Mt Kilimanjaro.
Other major contributors were The Robertson Trust (£43,000), The Fraser Foundation (£10,000), Mugdock Children's Trust (£6,000), Our Kids Too (£5,000), Thornton Solicitors (£2,000), Simon Davies (£2,000) and Mary Ware (£1,000).
All those whose names appear below also contributed and, to you all, we give our grateful thanks. By the time you read this we will have moved in and the following therapeutic activities will have new homes: art, play, rhythmical massage, speech, drama, therapeutic baths and counselling.
