Guild Care’s Ashdown Siblings group, which offers sessions for brothers and sisters of young people with disabilities and additional needs, was chosen for Worthing Lions Club’s president’s award for 2016/17.
Marian Down, who ended her year in office in June, and new president John Hollington visited Ashdown Centre to present a cheque for £2,000 to Guild Care chief executive Suzanne Millard and the siblings group.
The children enjoyed meeting the Lions’ mascot, thanks to LIon Tony Carter.
Marian said: “I chose Ashdown Siblings as I have a disabled younger brother and I am personally aware of the toll that can take on so-called normal family life.
“I wanted the siblings to have some quality time and I am so pleased Guild Care offers this much-needed service to them.”
The money will go towards trips out or extra play equipment.
