MLA inspired by special needs group

12 October, 2007

Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has praised a local group which cares for young children with special needs after it received a prestigious award.

Ms. Anderson said:

"I visited the Little Orchids Centre at Gransha Park this week and I was truly inspired by the work they are doing.

"To see the children so active and full of fun was a joy to watch and to hear the testimony of parents who were amazed by the progress of their children after attending the centre was incredibly moving.

"Margaret Walsh and her team at Little Orchids are doing an incredible job on extremely limited resources and I am not in the least bit surprised that they were recently presented with the Prince's Foundation Award for Integrated Health.

"I wish them all the very best for the future and I will do everything in my power to ensure that they have all the support they need to keep providing such an incredible service." ENDS
