Following a devastating fire in the garage on the 4th October 2018 we have lost 4 of our buses, one of which was brand new after a major fundraising campaign last year. There has also been extensive damage done to our newly renovated training kitchen and art room where many of our daily activities take place. Lakers have been fundraising for many many years to raise funds for a purpose built building which our wonderful members deserve. All donations big or small. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Lakers team
Please note you will see the names Cathy Kelly, Anne King and Helen Furlong in the title of this link, they are Lakers staff members.
