Momentum Children’s Charity

We continue to have the valuable partnership and support from the Momentum Children’s Charity which supports children with cancer and life-challenging conditions.

In 2019 they transformed two more rooms, and in partnership with West Byfleet golf club provided a state of the art drop down canopy to protect our vulnerable children from UV rays.

As there were funds left over some beautiful outdoor chairs were bought for parents watching their child at play.

Thank you Momentum and West Byfleet Golf Club!
