Amazing donation from Higgins!

 

We were thrilled to receive a huge quantity of wood Higgins Builders Merchants, which was kindly arranged as a donation from Thomas, who works there.

 

Woodwork is always such a popular activity here at our Centre, and our clients, together with the support of our volunteers, enjoy working together to create useful items.

 

With such a generous donation, there's no end to the items that can be created and we can't wait to see what comes out of our woodwork room, so a huge thank you to Higgins! 

 

If there's anything that you may be interested in donating to us here at Headway, please do get in touch as we'd love to hear from you! Please email  rebecca.lake@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk
