Chuckle’s Children Centre based in Walton was founded in 2009 by Sara Christie and the late Jeff Reynolds and provides one-to-one activity based support for children of all ages with additional needs. This not-for-profit organisation relies on volunteers and grants, donations from parents and support from the education authorities for its in-school workshops.

Philip Jones (pictured) Stone’s County Councillor has been a supporter of Chuckles and on a recent visit gave Sara the good news that he was able once again to provide a substantial grant from the County Council’s Local Member Fund.

Philip said

“The warmth and friendliness is evident the minute you walk through the door and the dedication of Sara and the volunteers to make better the life chances of the children is an inspiration. I am so glad that I am able to help”
