Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit Charlie's JustGiving page.

Gateway Club is a social club for adults with learning disabilities. The club was started over 50 years ago by a group of parents who realised there was a lack of provision for their adult children once they left the School/College system. Since those early years Gateway Club has been on an exciting journey to become a vibrant busy club run entirely on a voluntary basis.

Members can take part in a variety of activities including quizzes, art and crafts, music, games and a sports activities including indoor football, cricket, archery, keep fit, dance, discos, trips to the seaside, Panto and much more. 

Gateway members take an active part in devising each term’s timetable. Members are listened to and included in all decisions regarding the club’s activities and days out.

On Saturday 16th September, Gateway Club have planned a sponsored walk with its members to raise funds for the club.There are two circuits, Charlie (being the girl who never says no) has opted for the longer walk.

Please support this amazing club and its passionate volunteers to continue the wonderful work they do.
