Community Chest September Winner
10th October 2017
We are delighted to award September's Community Chest fund to Friends of Wellingborough Library.
Friends of Wellingborough Library were
formed in 2014 to raise funds to provide extra items and activities for the
library customers, and to support and promote the library and its
services. So far, they have provided an
A-frame advertising board and other equipment, funded the Young People's Art
Project, and most recently, paid for Steve the Magician to entertain the
children at their Reading Challenge Party in September.
