We are keen to help them and to raise awareness of what they do and I look forward to working with them in the future too.”The £1,000 donation was made by the Copthorne Prep School’s Parent Committee from money raised by their own fundraising activities. “We are so grateful for this generous donation,” said Home-Start’s Fundraising Manager, Jacquie Thomas. “It will allow us to offer support to more local young families and help ensure their children are getting the best possible start in life.”For more information about Home-Start CHAMS and their work, please visit, or call Jacquie on 01293 416327
