Re:charge welcome first Christmas of relaunched sessions with party

Maidenhead's recently relaunched Re:charge support service has celebrated its first Christmas.


A party was held at Larchfield Community Centre in Desborough Park on Tuesday for the parents and children who use the service, which has since been renamed Re:charge Revive and Restore (R & R)

More than 45 people came to the party where they enjoyed festive food, music and a raffle.

There was also a visit from Father Christmas. 

The Re:charge cafe, the charities former base in Queen Street, was forced to close in April due to lack of funding.

The service was relaunched by mum-of-three Emma Lucas in November who now runs Re:charge from three Maidenhead locations providing advice as well as social opportunities for struggling families.

Emma said: "It was amazing. I was really encouraged to see so many families come together from different backgrounds.

"It was a really nice way to end a challenging year and celebrate what R & R has achieved."
