On 22nd January 2009, the LTFUC presented an Easy-Lift Bench to Kisharon’s Day School in Temple Fortune. The donation of the electric changing bench, worth over £2,000, will help facilitate the changing of the younger pupils at the ‘special needs’ school.
Kisharon is a charity established 32 years ago, which specialises in caring for and educating children and adults with learning disabilities. Kisharon prides itself on having extremely accredited services that cover life span provision from an integrated nursery to residential and supported living services. Kisharon are raising money to maintain the high quality of services that they provide and to meet the shortfall in funding from government and local authorities.

Kisharon’s Beverley Jacobson, Chief Executive, was joined by several members of the Fund at the ceremony, which saw the unveiling of the bench to staff and pupils. Dr. Jacobson commented “We would like to thank the London Taxidrivers’ Fund for their wonderful donation. Their contribution will help our staff to continue to provide a high-level of care within the community.” David Lessman, Chairman of the London Taxidrivers’ Charity for Children said: “Kisharon provides an essential service and we are delighted to be able to contribute to the school and provide a much needed piece of equipment.”
