Firm donates cash to kids

CHILDREN from a family support centre are set for some animal magic after receiving a cheque for more than £750 from a Somercotes firm to treat them to a day out at the farm.

Staff at Slimming World head office raised the money in a raffle for families from Redhouse Family Support Centre in Alfreton to visit White Post Farm and Wonderland, near Farnsfield, during the Easter school holidays.

For the past five years, Slimming World has held Christmas parties for the support centre and has raised funds for three years.

Rosie Sheffield, manager of Redhouse, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Slimming World for their continued support and generosity.

“It’s very special to the families as many of them would be unable to take their children on these trips otherwise.

“It allows them to have a break and create great memories of days out together as a family.”
