Adult learning disability charity FACET given �1k boost

ADULT learning disability charity FACET received a major boost when it was handed two cheques totalling more than �1,000.

Fenland Area Community Enterprise Trust (FACET) received �900 from Andrew Pugh, the Worshipful Master of Stonecross Lodge in March, after he and his wife Silvia held a ladies’ night to raise money for charities.

The charity, which has shops in Chatteris and March, then received a �200 donation from members of Fenzone Youth Council who took part in a dance-a-thon led by Charlie Manders.

Both cheques will go towards Facet’s Marwick Centre Sensory Room which is available to people of all ages that have learning disabilities, physical disabilities and/or sensory impairment.

FACET has also received further good news after its application for funding under the East of England Community Grants programme was successful.
