Gavin Williamson MP for South Staffordshire recently visited an exciting community project called The Woodshed in Wombourne. The Woodshed is run by Terry Hunt with the aim of encouraging children of all ages to get involved and contribute something to their local community. The Woodshed teaches youngsters vital wood working skills and the youngsters are able to help make products which are sold to raise money for Pegasus House which is an options for life charity based in Wombourne.
This weekend Pegasus House is providing residential respite care for the first time in their new home which was able to open thanks to local support given by so many to make this dream a reality.
Commenting on his visit Gavin Williamson MP said:
"To see young people getting involved and giving up their time to learn new skills and to raise money for a local charity is really inspiring, The activities that they are undertaking not only benefit them and their future but also helps the many young people who rely every single day upon the activities and respite care provided so brilliantly by Pegasus House. I remember Sheila outlining everything that she wanted to achieve at Pegasus House and what an enormous task it seemed at the time. It has been a privilege to help and watch this become a reality. South Staffordshire is desperately in need of more outstanding care facilities like this one and I am quite sure these will be valued by s many.'
4 new bedrooms have been opened at Pegasus House to offer respote care and these will be launched on Friday.
