Community Chest Winners

Each month, one community cause, club or charity is selected to receive £100 from our Community Chest initiative and the latest winners are Bumble Bee’s pre school.

The pre school is based at the Kingsway Centre in Wellingborough, they look after children from the age of 2 until they start school. Bumble Bee’s are only a small pre school so any additional funding they can get is really helpful in making the children’s time there more enjoyable and educational.

Jackie Dorling, administrator at Bumble Bee’s pre school said “We are extremely grateful to Swansgate Shopping Centre for this award. Every year we take our children on a big Summer trip and we plan on using this award to make the trip even bigger and better than usual for the children.”

Lindsay Tickner, Centre Manager says, “We love to be able to support members of our local community and our Community Chest initiative gives us the great way of doing just this. Being able to pick a deserving cause each month is fantastic.”

“We look forward to hearing how Bumble Bee’s Summer trip goes” she added.

If you would like to be considered for the Community Chest award, then simply fill out a card and post in the entry box by the Community Noticeboard (in between Wilko & Home Bargains). You can nominate until the end of each month, where one nomination will be chosen to receive £100.
