Support for Sevenoaks

Wendy Marlow is the Sevenoaks Representative for the Charity the Children's Respite Trust

The Children’s Respite Trust is delighted to announce that Wendy Marlow is to be the Charity’s new Representative for Sevenoaks & West Kent.

The Children’s Respite Trust, has for eight years helped families to get a break from the strain of caring for a disabled child 24 hours a day throughout the South East. However, its work in the Sevenoaks and West Kent area has been limited until now. The charity hopes that the new post will enable the charity to support many more families.

About Wendy

Wendy has experience in the field having spent 18 years working in the education sector. She says about her new role: “I’m delighted to be on board with the Children’s Respite Trust. I’m passionate about supporting families with disabled children and can’t wait to start making a difference.” 

Sevenoaks Lions Club

The Sevenoaks Lions Club has helped to make the position possible with a significant donation. The Trust’s Chief Executive, Gavin Fisher, said of the contribution: “We’re very grateful to everyone at the Lions Club for so generously supporting this initiative. It’s going to make a big difference to our ability to help disabled children and their families in the area.”

The Club’s gift will help pay for costs involved in setting up the Charity’s service in the area.

Support Work

Wendy will be the Charity’s Representative in West Kent. It means that families of disabled children now have a point of contact in the town, as do supporters too. Wendy’s first task is to help spread the word about the Trust, so that families know that help is available. Meanwhile, Wendy is learning all about the Charity’s casework, as well as doing plenty of training.
