Anna had this to say after the show:

“It was great to be back in the Gateway Studio this month with Aston talking ‘All things Autism in Essex’ 
The first half of the show I was being interviewed by the Kids Gateway Club about the work of the charity. What a lovely group of young people.

Our guests this week were Warren Clark founder of Golfing Dreams registered charity and Amanda Buckley from Merlin’s Magic Wand Charity.

Warren, whom the charity is named after, is a young man with Autism and learning disabilities. Warren is passionate about golf and represented team GB at the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019. I was proud to be asked to be their charity Patron after I visited the golf centre a few weeks ago.

Warren is a qualified S.N.A.G Golf coach and loves to share his passion with others. Introducing golf to a wide range of disadvantaged people is what Warren dreams to do and does.

In the summer of 2019 Warren Clark Golfing Dreams attended over thirty-five local events and introduced golf to over 6,000 people.

Whilst spending quality time with their own family members and friends, people from all walks of life come together in our sessions, meet new people, work as a team, and learn to communicate with others. People with physical and learning disabilities, and differences of faith and culture interact in our community sessions where we teach golf, teamwork, and social tolerance.

Our second guest was Amanda Buckley who I met a month ago and has started her role in Marketing since 2021. Merlin’s Magic Wand is the official international children’s charity of Merlin Entertaintainments, dedicated to providing magical experiences for children and families who need them most.
