Local mum, Jenny Scrivener, has donated a £700 cheque to Hogarth Community Centre.
She present the cheque to the centre’s two youth officers, Denny Anthony and Naomi Alleyne after recently completing a sponsored virtual marathon.
Jenny’s son Charlie is a regular attendee to Hogarth Centre, so she was determined to demonstrate her gratitude for the support which the youth centre provides.
Speaking afterwards, Jenny said:
“I was thrilled when the Centre was able to reopen after lockdown. It ran its terrific Summer Programme and opened again this term. It is so important for youngsters to socialise in a safe and supportive place and the Centre provides every one of them with a great range of activities. Of course, it all costs money so I am glad that I had the opportunity to help.”
Hogarth Centre’s fundraising efforts hit by Covid
COVID has hit the community centre’s fundraising efforts very hard so they are especially grateful for Jenny’s gift and the local community who continue to support them.
A spokesperson for Hogarth Centre, Fred Lucas, said:
‘We are so very grateful to Jenny for her great initiative and physical efforts to raise this much needed money for our youth programme which is facing some big challenges this year.’
