Staff at the Olympic Delivery Authority donated �115 from a collection.
A major contributor to our appeal this year has been Ellmer.
Kevin Jenkins of Community Links said: ““Special thanks to FB Ellmer Ltd for their tremendous all round support and help with the appeal which has been crucial in enabling us to help all the children referred in this the toughest and most difficult of all years – thank you”.
