Over the past 10 years, the Tim Lamb Centre has grown in both popularity and size. In 2012 we had approximately 100 members, whereas now we have over 1500 member families. Since first opening, we have extended and re-modeled the design of the building, adding many new features and making better use of the space. There have also been improvements to the garden area too, including a further £120,000 spend on the garden between 2020-2021.
We know the Tim Lamb Centre provides a lifeline to hundreds of Northeast disabled children and their families. We love seeing the joy on the faces of all the children as they explore and play in our centre. We hear from parents; the relief they feel knowing there is somewhere safe and secure to bring their child, without judgement or ridicule.
We are very grateful for the commitment and support we have received over the last 10 years, from volunteers and supporters; local businesses and grant giving charities. To each and every one of you, we’d like to say a big THANK YOU.
We also need to give a special mention to our founder member and voluntary CEO, Lynn McManus, who has worked tirelessly over the past 13 years. Without Lynn’s enormous effort and the support of her wider family, the Tim Lamb Centre would simply not be here today celebrating our 10th Anniversary.
