Meet the man who helped save a Reading club for disabled children

She said: “This summer Trevor Absolom jumped out of a plane to support Messy Club.

"He wanted raise £1,000 but the donations just kept coming in and eventually he raised £2,500!

“Trevor sadly lost his close friend Matt Farrall at this time, too, and has been helping raise money for a defibrillator for Whitley, and is putting on a gig in Reading in September to honour him.

“Trevor also champions Reading Elvis and plans to fulfil his dream by raising enough money to send him to Graceland for his upcoming 70th birthday.

“Trevor loves Reading and is always going out of his way to make things better for people. He is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met.”

Mr Absolom said: “I feel very humbled; it’s a lovely thing for Luisa to have done and I’m very proud that she’s nominated me.”

When asked why he supported Messy Club, he said: “What better way to spend your 50th than doing a sky dive from 15,000ft?! But more importantly, I wanted to help Luisa and Messy Club.

Columbia U Protests 50 Years Ago Offer Insight for Today's Activists

Some students had been working with Harlem community groups. They saw the gym as a symbol of the university’s “power” over a defenseless and poverty-stricken black neighborhood. They joined local politicians who opposed the gym for a myriad of reasons, including its concrete footprint in a green park and the inability of the community to have access to the entire structure once built.

Troubled relations

The situation was, of course, complex. Columbia had long been a contentious neighbor to Harlem and Morningside Heights. The campus gym was decrepit and prevented the university from competing with its Ivy peers effectively in terms of facilities and space. Regarding the park, Columbia had constructed softball fields that initially community members could use. By 1968, however, only campus affiliates could access the fields. Then, white faculty members had been mugged in the park.

The university, seeking to expand in the postwar period, purchased US$280 million of land, mortgages and residential buildings in Harlem and Morningside Heights. That resulted in the eviction of nearly 10,000 residents in a decade, 85 percent of whom were black or Puerto Rican.
