PROCEEDS of a 24 hour sponsored fish organised by the Whitemoor Angling Club, was handed to two Home-Start schemes in Fenland.

Ron Vanstone, chairman and the governor of Whitemoor Prison, Angie Hartley, handed over a cheque for £600 to the two administrators' of the Fenland and Wisbech schemes, Amanda Boyden and Lindsey Vanstone at the Community Education Centre in March.

Mary Hutson, co-ordinator of the Wisbech scheme, said: "I really appreciate the prison service being involved with supporting the local community and the difference it will make to families."

Home-Start is a voluntary organisation to support parents with young children who need some additional support to see them through a difficult period in their lives.

The core work of the organisation is to offer support in the home through a befriending confidential service to give practical and/or emotional help ~ a shoulder to cry or lean on, an ear to be listened to, or a helping hand.

CONTACT: Mary at Wisbech 01945 583855 or Carole or Amanda at March 01354 655900.
