On Wednesday 12th January 2011 the Hon. Chair and Committee of the LTFUC attended the Joseph Clarke School for the Visually Impaired at Highams Park, London, E4 to officially present the staff and children with some much needed equipment, consisting of notebooks, computer touch screens, projectors, tripods, etc. value £10,000, following an appeal we had received from them.
The Assistant Head Teacher, Mrs H L’Aimable, informed us that the school had 84 pupils and Clive, one of the pupils, kindly showed us around after the presentation. We were thrilled and delighted to see the children using the new equipment, as being given access to the latest technology, many of them can go on to compete successfully with their sighted peers and proceed into higher education and train and equip themselves for employment opportunities.
The LTFUC’s Hon. Chair, Susan Angel, introduced each committee member to everyone and we all left feeling very proud and privileged to be able to assist and help such a worthy cause. We all enjoyed the afternoon and thank the school most sincerely for the refreshments provided to us.
