Lodge League of Friends
league was set up to support and encourage the excellent care provided
at Brentford Lodge on Boston Manor Road - next to the Health Centre.
The compassionate care of the Staff towards the clients and their
families cannot be faulted and we are determined that this purpose

We are currently
seeking voluntary support from fit local people and schools with the garden
maintenance. Over the past three years the garden programme has been maintained
by the pupils of Gunnesbury Boys School and St Paul's School Barnes working
towards their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Awards (photo Left). We are currently
looking for more volunteers!
For the past
few years we have organised Quiz/BBQ events to raise funds for specific
projects ie garden furniture. Currently we are pursuing a way to provide
additional Therapies for the clients at the Lodge.
