Mothercare Presents Children’s Centre with £2500

On Tuesday 1st November the Mothercare Group Foundation visited Watford Mencap’s Afterschool Club and presented them with a cheque for £2500.  Funding like this is vital to Watford Mencap’s Afterschool Club, which supports children with learning disabilities in South West Hertfordshire.

Simone Spencer-Ahmed, from the Mothercare Group Foundation said:

The trustees of the Mothercare Group Foundation are delighted to be supporting Watford Mencap's Afterschool Club as a highly valued local service for children and young people with a learning disability.  It provides a safe and reassuring environment in which they can socialise, play games, develop new skills, or simply relax - at the same time providing much-needed respite for families.’

Lauren McEvoy, Watford Mencap Fundraiser, explained:

‘We are delighted that the Mothercare Group Foundation has given the Afterschool Club £2500.  They have been very supportive to the children’s centre over the years and this money will go towards funding a play worker for a whole term.’
