Our Community Group Award winner is...
10 October 2014
Havercroft Children’s Centre won the Community Group category at our 2014 Love Where You Live Awards.
The group was able to develop fund-raising and skill-sharing opportunities to improve an area in which aspirations and levels of achievement are traditionally low.
Volunteers overcame their own lack of skills, knowledge and confidence while significantly improving the life chances, opportunities for enjoyment and self-esteem of children and their families.
Julie Crawford, of the Havercroft Children’s Centre Parents’ Forum, said: “We’re planning to celebrate with a big party for everyone who is involved in our group. This summer we helped nearly 800 children to enjoy trips to the coast and other places during the holidays, and we’re hoping to use this money to fund the same opportunities next year.”
