Children from Forest First Children’s Centre enjoyed a great party to the start the New Year, thanks to a donation from Spectrum Housing Group’s Neighbourhood Housing Projects.

Emily Cameron, Family Support Worker at Forest First centre, was grateful for Spectrum’s funding:

“Spectrum Housing Group have helped us with donations over the past few years and we continue to be grateful for their ongoing support. The event was a huge success with over 50 children attending and we would not have been able to provide them with gifts and entertainment had it not been for Spectrum’s donation”.

The children’s centre, based in Fawley, Southampton, was approved by Spectrum’s Neighbourhood Housing Officer, Carolyn Turner, who said:

“Working within neighbourhood teams, I know how important it is to give something back to the communities in which we work. One way that this is possible is by using our £500 project fund to help projects within Southampton. Forest First Children’s Centre are a well-deserving organisation and Spectrum were very happy to make the donation and attend the party which was a great success.”
