An Abbots Langley charity for adults with learning difficulties has thanked Watford Community Housing Trust for donating £500 towards its Christmas meal.

The Monday Club applied to the Trust’s Community Chest, which is a fund which offers grants of up to £500 for local groups to run meetings and projects.

The grant will help to pay for a meal for all the club’s members and volunteers at the Royal Oak in Abbots Langley on Monday, December 9. Over 60 people are expected to attend.

The Monday Club will also be holding a collection at the Dome Roundabout Asda on Saturday, December 7 to raise further funds towards the meal.

John Fisher founded the club 25 years ago to provide a social place for people with learning difficulties to meet once a week.

He said: "We are incredibly grateful. We are entirely staffed by volunteers so this grant is going to make a huge difference. It’s a huge thank you from all of us to Watford Community Housing Trust."

Ruairi McCourt, Director of Homes and Community Services at Watford Community Housing Trust, added: "As a community-focused organisation it’s important to us to support activities like this as they contribute to friendlier neighbourhoods. We are delighted to support the Christmas meal and hope the Monday Club have a fantastic event in December."
