Community Wise has received a £340 cheque as part of Waitrose’s Community Matters scheme.

The community centre in Ocklynge Road will put the money towards its play area refurbishment and a fence at the back of the building.

Community Wise youth worker Justin Ayres, receptionist Melodie Gibson and manager of Community Wise Sue Relf went to the Waitrose store in Old Town to collect the cheque from supermarket staff.

Sue said, “The play area at the back is in real need of upgrading as over 400 children and young people use the premises each month.”
