Charity benefits from donation

A DAVENTRY charity has been given a donation of £7.000 at an awards ceremony.

Time2Talk based in the Abbey Centre helps thousands of young people and offers information, counselling and sexual health services.

The organisation applied to Community Gifts as it needed money to secure its office accommodation for another year, following a cut in funding from Daventry District Council.

Manager Andrew Nixon said: “We got £7,000 so we were thrilled to bits. This will keep us going for the next 12 months, which is crucial.”

The money was given by Barclaycard as part of its Community Gifts scheme.
