A charity which provides support to young families in Cambridgeshire has received a generous donation.

Home-Start Cambridgeshire received £920 from Redrow Homes South Midlands, which is building the King’s Meadow development on Kings Avenue in Ely, as it continues to support families with young children during the coronavirus pandemic.

The funds will enable the charity, which promotes the welfare of families with young children, to increase its capacity as well as provide household items such as stairgates to keep children safe while at home.

Marney Connor, senior coordinator at Home-Start Cambridgeshire, said: “The donation will make such a difference to the lives of local families, and we’d like to say a big thank you to Redrow Homes South Midlands for its support.”
