Martha Trust support people with profound physical and multiple learning disabilities and provide a home for life as well as respite. 2017 marks their 30th anniversary.

Amy says “It was a really nice event and it was lovely to involve our girls from Mary House. Other participants cheered us on especially at the finish line. I think it is great that my children want to volunteer with our residents; they get on great with them. It is important for children to understand about disabilities.”
