Terry was there to open the Playground in 1982 and has been involved ever since, supporting us at key moments during our development over the past 34 years. As well as officiating at the opening of new areas of the Playground, he supported us by taking part in fundraising events, including assuming the role of master of ceremonies at a concert at Stubbings, and, more recently, allowing himself to be put in the spotlight "In Conversation" as part of "Tea with Terry" - a fundraising event held at the Playground!
Over the years Terry visited on many occasions, including receptions for our corporate Guardians, and even a surprise visit when he came down to share with the children a huge birthday cake which he had been given. When he couldn't make it himself, he was always happy to help by promoting our events on his radio show - whenever we needed him, he was there!
His backing and friendship have played a hugely important part in helping us to support the children and adults with special needs who rely on us. From everyone here, and from all those for whom the Playground has been such a lifeline over the past 34 years, we thank him for all he has done for us.
