Thanks to Open Chest for donating £500 to Cambridgeshire Mencap

13:57 03 January 2013

I WAS recently presented with a cheque for £500 by Kath Dudley and Michelle Elmore from the Open Chest charity shop in March.

This donation was given for our new Artworks Project for children and adults with learning disabilities in Fenland, whicht is based at 88 High Street, March.

The money, together with other donations of money and materials, has enabled us to reach the target amount to install a sensory room in the New Year. A wonderful Christmas gift for us.

On behalf of our members and their families, we wish to thank all the volunteers, donors of goods and customers at Open Chest for making this possible.

All the profit from Open Chest is donated to community groups like us. Please give any unwanted goods you may have directly to the shop or telephone 01354 654403 to arrange collection.

Yet again we read of another bad accident on the A1101. I have only lived in the area since March this year and I regularly use this road. I love living here but the one thing I soon realised was the appalling standard of driving around here particularly on this road.
