Club receives £600 donation boost as it opens in North Devon village.
TWO councillors have clubbed together to give the Appledore Kidz Club a welcome boost of £600.
Councillors Andrew Eastman and Barry Edwards donated £300 each from their annual grant allowance to help the club get off to a flying start.
The club is staffed by local volunteer mums, and opens from Tuesday to Thursday from 3.30pm until 5.30pm.
Pene Haynes, chairman of the group, said: “We’ve used the money to provide training courses for the volunteers - first aid, food hygiene and child protection are all critical to the set up and running of the club.
“It is so wonderful to be part of such a great community so well supported by the local council and community leaders. I cannot say how grateful we are to Andrew Eastman and Barry Edwards for all their support.”
