Eddie’s Artworks in High Street, March, plans to use the money for shelving and storage of art materials.

Val Topliss, chairman of the March Committee for Children’s Charities, said: “We have been associated with Eddie’s for a few years now and are pleased to continue that support with a further donation of £500 to help with their invaluable work in the community.”

Deb Matthysz, creative tutor, said: “We are thrilled with this generous donation which we have earmarked for some much needed shelving and storage to make the resources at Artworks more accessible and user friendly.

“This will encourage the members to be more independent in choosing and accessing materials and resources they need for their projects.”
