Pauline Noble: December 2016
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our Toy and Gift Service a couple of weeks ago. Madeleine, from Action for Children, and myself filled 2 cars with the wonderful gifts you had given, and to the amazement and delight of excited staff at the Family Centre, filled their office with gifts for children and young people, plus knitted blankets and garments for babies (not forgetting the "so useful" wrapping paper). The gifts will be distributed amongst the Family Centres in the Aylesbury hub to vulnerable children and families under their care. Gifts of money came to almost £200, and after a call to The Grove centre for special needs, we decided to buy 2 items of equipment for their new sensory room, which will be enjoyed by all the young people who attend the centre. Thank you all very much.
