Arenal Deportiva Lodge No 65 Help Autistic Needs Children´s Summer School in Javea
On Friday the 7th July, Freemasons of Arenal Deportiva Lodge No 65 were delighted to help with the funding of the annual summer school for Autistic needs children from the local area.
Worshipful Brother Peter Johnson, who is the current Master of the lodge, with lodge members and their partners, along with representatives from Todos Juntos Javea, Jean Halse and Marion Kenworthy, were delighted to meet Ruben, the Director of Asociación Autismo of Javea, to present a cheque for €1000 which will help fund the summer school this year.
Ruben was delighted to receive the donation and explained that the summer school could now afford another teacher, who is very much needed, as the summer school accommodates over 40 children on a daily basis from many different nationalities over the summer months.
These children, who are from the Javea area and are aged between 3 to 18 years, benefit from one on one and group therapy at the school, as well as having lots of fun and playtime, splashing around in the temporary pools and playing on the garden swings and equipment in the summer sunshine.
The funds were raised by Arenal Deportiva lodge on an initiative from our ladies who suggested we hold a 1920´s themed dinner dance to support this very worthy cause.
