Lizard CHILD Trust celebrates National Lottery award


On Tuesday 13th October 2020 the Lizard CHILD Trust charity received the very welcome news that they had been successful in their application for funds of £22918.00.

The 21 year old charity, which includes a well-established nursery situated within the grounds of St Michaels School that has stayed open throughout the lockdown period, supports and welcomes the children and families of the Helston and Lizard area all year round.

There have been challenges, but the manager Sarah Arthur and the talented and devoted management and practitioner team have always upheld their founding objective of enhancing and promoting the learning and development of Early Years children.

Often the staff go above and beyond the remit of their roles to support children and families in need, working closely with other local government, professional and charities to secure aid and resources for the children in their care.

With this in mind, the charity applied for National Lottery funds to support children of vulnerable families during holiday periods over the coming academic year – a total of £22981.00.

Judith Bristow, a spokesperson of the Lizard CHILD Trust stated that the funds will go a long way to uphold and sustain the services that the Trust provides, and help the families of our local community.

This successful application closely follows another grant from Helston Town Council for outdoor clothing for children and staff.

Judith Bristow stated at the recent Helston Town Council meeting that the Town Council grant was very gratefully received, and the staff were looking forward to putting the funds to good use.

The Trust continues to seek ways to support attendant children and families past, present and future, and welcomes partnerships with local agencies so that it can continue to make a positive difference to the wellbeing and future of Helston Town.
