Tamworth club ATIK has made a £3,365 donation towards the purchase of a specialised wheelchair to help give a teenage girl her independence back.
Stacey Penney, general manager of the Spinning School Lane venue, presented the grant to Simon’s Heroes on behalf of the Echo Trust, which provides grants to children’s and young adults charities across the UK.
Stacey said: “The donation is a way we can give back to the community. We hold regular collections at the club and our customers are always generous. We chose Simon’s Heroes because of the valued work it does to help young people and their families. Our grant will buy a TIGA Sub4 ultra–lightweight wheelchair for 16-year-old Ellie Clover to improve her quality of life.”
Justin Haywood of Simon’s Heroes said: “We’re very grateful to ATIK and the Echo Trust for their generous donation which will make a big difference to Ellie who has suffered a severe spinal stroke.
“Our charity raises money through a range of activities to improve the quality of life and make a positive difference to local children in need. We have more than 70 dedicated members who volunteer their time to the cause and rely heavily on our partnerships, sponsors and supporters to keep us going.”
ATIK is part of The Deltic Group, the UK’s largest operator of late night bars and clubs, which employs 3000 people across its 57 venues.
Since 2002, when Deltic set up the Echo Trust, it has raised more than £2.5 million to grant awards to local children’s charities and children’s hospitals.
