National Grid has donated £2,334 to our charity from a special £500,000 Christmas fund.

Our charity was nominated by a local National Grid employee as one of several local charities to receive support over the festive period.

The special Christmas fund is part of a package of measures being rolled out to support grassroots community groups that help vulnerable customers.

Jacky Massos, Charity Manager, says: “This funding will be enough for us to support two local families, who find themselves in the terrifying position of having a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Money worries should be the last thing on your mind when you’re caring for a very poorly child. Care for Kids relieves some of the financial pressure that can build when you have to travel to specialist hospitals and take lengthy time off work. Thank you National Grid!”
