A good night’s sleep for George and his parents, thanks to Lions’ donation

Members of Watford Lions visited DEMAND’s workshop, in Abbots Langley, to present a cheque for £1,000 to support the charity’s work to transform life for disabled people.

Watford Lions have pledged to support projects in Abbots Langley with a portion of proceeds from the Abbots Langley Carnival.

This year, their support has helped an autistic Abbots Langley boy sleep safely in his bed at night.

Ten-year-old George would often harm himself on the sharp corners and walls surrounding his bed. DEMAND’s engineers designed padding to be fixed to the walls round his bed to make George’s environment safer, so he and his parents can get a night’s sleep.

DEMAND fundraising manager Denise Gillies said: “Our work is so important to the disabled people we help, we’re glad the Watford Lions group have offered their support again to help fund the life-transforming projects we complete in the local community.”

DEMAND will be holding a stall at the Abbots Langley Carnival this year, on Saturday June 11.
