We are delighted to announce that PM PROjEN’s recent Christmas raffle managed to raise funds for our newly nominated charity, the Halton Play Council. Through a combination of money raised through the raffle and a further donation from PM PROjEN, we were very happy to be able to donate a total of £1,000.
The Halton Play Council was established in 1997 and offers services such as play schemes and leisure activities for children with additional needs. They are a local, independent charity who believe that all children, of all abilities deserve the right to play. Play is such a critical part of a child’s natural development, helping them to build relationships with others as well as helping them to progress as individuals.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 restrictions have meant that we have been unable to visit the Play Resource Centre in person to discuss ways in which PM PROjEN can provide help. However, through various conversations with Joyce Reilly, the Manager of the charity, we have managed to gain a good insight in to their key needs and have firmly established that they require practical help; for example, to provide an updated storage facility and the need for an outdoor covered area. Together with practical support and assistance, they would also benefit hugely from monetary donations to help to improve the play scheme in general.
We hope that our fundraising efforts in 2021 will continue to benefit this very worthwhile local charity and over time as the COVID-19 restrictions ease, we hope to be able to draw on the engineering skills of our staff to provide practical support to our new friends at the Halton Play Council.
