Good Work at Leonard Cheshire Disability Home

As you may be aware, the Ashmanhaugh Light Railway has enabled the Leonard Cheshire Disability organisation to raise funds during some of our Open Days, and last Friday we were invited to the home, just outside Norwich, to the 'official' opening of the footpath that has been funded by several organisations which includes the revenue received by the Charity during our Open Days. The substantial new tarmac footpath has been constructed all the way round the lake on this lovely site and provides a very pleasant walk for the residents, several of whom took part in the opening in their wheelchairs and then proceeded to 'test' the new path ! Refreshments were provided afterwards, which made for a pleasant afternoon for all, and it was good to see how the money raised had been put to such good use.

Residents and guests test the new footpath !

P.S. The Leonard Cheshire Disability are holding their own Charity Day at the Ashmanhaugh Light Railway this year on Sunday 20th May, when we hope we will be able to welcome you !!!!!l
