A NURSERY for children with special needs has received a £500 cheque.
The money was handed over to the Camelia Botnar Children’s Centre, in Wellesley Avenue, Goring, on Monday. It was raised by Michael Jones estate agents which made a small donation each time it received a new property to market.
The funds will go towards extending the centre’s free pre-school care
The charity’s director of partnerships and fund-raising, Michael Kay, said: “We are so grateful to Michael Jones for their fantastic support and generous donation.
“Currently, the centre is open in term-time only so to provide care to more families that need it, we would like to open 50 weeks a year but without any state funding, we desperately need donations from companies and members of the public to achieve this goal.
Michael Jones, who presented the money, said: “We wanted to give something back to the community to show our thanks for their custom over the past twenty years.
“As a family owned company, the Camelia Botnar Children’s Centre was the perfect choice. It’s been helping families in the area since 1979 and now needs as much support as possible to keep it going. We want to do everything we can to help it through this difficult time.”
