Saturday Cubby Club for Special Needs Children boosted by local bequest
Thanks to the generous donation from the estate of Redlands’ local, Ian Webster-McDougall, Play List Group’s new Saturday Cubby Club will go ahead. This much-needed program for local children with low to moderate disabilities will provide sensory play activities and music therapy for children aged up to 13 years.
The executor of the estate of Ian Webster-McDougall contacted Play List Group and offered $25,000 to support the program after reading the story in the Redland City Bulletin.
Donation a huge boost for local families living with a disability
Play List Group founder Alex Shaw expressed her delight at receiving such vital funding and paid tribute to Mr Webster-McDougall and his Executors. “We were absolutely blown away to receive a call the very day after the story about our Saturday Cubby Club appeared in the paper,” Ms Shaw said. “This donation will make a huge difference in the lives of many local families living with disability and we are very honoured now to be part of Mr Webster-McDougall’s legacy,” she said.
Saturday Cubby Club beginning July 2015
The first Saturday Cubby Club will be held on 18th July at the Cubby House Children’s Respite in Birkdale and aims to support up to 32 children each year.
