Harleston charity praises business for ‘wonderful donation’
Charity Harleston Information Plus has thanked staff and customers of the Co-op after they helped raise more than £1,600.
Harleston and Laxfield foodstores and Harleston Funeralcare, raised the cash through the businesses’ Local Community Fund scheme.
Julie Helsby, Community Support Manager at Harleston Information Plus, said: “This is a wonderful donation which will go towards running our community information services.
“It will allow us to provide a number of activities over the next year that would not otherwise have been available locally.”
Harleston Information Plus has already organised some events for May and June including a free Emergency First aid session with Waveney First Responders, beginners IT classes, evening workshops offering help with career choices and job search.
There are also plans for a series of beginners art classes called Art is for everyone.
