Town centre fun day supports community resource centre

Excited children leapt onto a bouncy castle in blazing sunshine at a fun day in Maidenhead town centre on Saturday.

Families and shoppers browsed the book, tombola and cake stalls and chatted with friends at the fundraiser in Providence Square in aid of Boyn Grove Community Resource Centre.

The centre, which treats about 125 people with learning difficulties and others living with dementia, is hoping to raise £5,000 to buy a wheelchair swing and 20 talking photo albums.

The special albums enable family and friends of people in care to record messages and stories to go with each photograph.

The campaign, which will see more fundraising days take place in the coming months, is being sponsored by Sainsbury's.

Boyn Grove day service manager Julia Harris said: "The day was fantastic and well attended. Having Sainsbury's sponsor us will enable us to buy much-needed equipment."
