“I became involved with Thomley as a result of my son being diagnosed as autistic. The great enjoyment he gets out of the facilities and the caring attitude of the staff at Thomley persuaded me that I ought to become more involved. I hope, as a patron, to bring the wonderful work being done here to a wider public and help Thomley continue to develop as a first class resource”.
