Children enjoying their end of term day at the PACE Centre on Wendover Road, Aylesbury welcomed Gordon Robertson, head of Freemasonry in Buckinghamshire, when he visited to see the covered play area in used, following a £10,000 donation towards its construction.
PACE is a family-centred charity which provides an innovative education for life for children with sensory motor disorders, such as cerebral palsy.
The play area was opened in January along with the Weston Centre and is part of the first stage of the building project which is eventually going to be the new Early Years and Independence Training Centre for the charity. It is a safe and secure area, sheltered from the elements, with soft flooring and many state of the art toys and learning devices which the children can enjoy with their one to one teachers.
Designed to support and educate very young children and their families, the new centre will also assist in teaching older children independence in their life with a custom designed kitchen and living space.
Bucks Freemasons have been connected with PACE for several years as part of the many and varied ways in which their core values of Friendship, Integrity and Charity are used to benefit the local community and underline their commitment to assisting families and children.
