Surrey chairman pays epilepsy charity a visit
Surrey County Council Chairman Sally Marks paid tribute to the “fantastic work” of volunteeers at The Meath Epilepsy Trust when she took a tour of the charity’s Godalming base, including a new £2.3 million centre being built. The trust helps adults with severe epilepsy and related disabilities build confidence and gain new skills.
Mrs Marks said: “I was delighted to be invited to take a tour around the great facilities the Trust offer and meet the people who benefit from using these. The charity does great work with people affected by the condition, which often goes under the radar despite more than 600,000 living with it in the UK, and it was great to see the work going into the building of the new facitility which will help people with the greatest needs. I’d also like to highlight the fantastic work done by the volunteers at the trust, which without them would simply cease to exist.”
