Home-Start Wokingham awarded lottery grant


Family support charity Home-Start Wokingham has been awarded a £300,000 lottery grant.

ngie Mycock, co-manager of Home-Start Wokingham, said: “We are all absolutely over the moon. I cannot put it into words, it’s been a really tough couple of years.

“It’s our third attempt to get it and we have been having to manage with fundraising anywhere and everywhere we can get money from in order to deliver our services.

“Our trustees have done a brilliant job and we have got some support from Wokingham Borough Council, but we were hoping for the grant to take the pressure off.”

Home-Start provides support for families who are struggling to cope or who are at crisis point.
