Over £18,000 has been given to a charity helping families with young kids in Aylesbury Vale.

The cash comes from the Chairman of the old District Council and it has been given to Nest in a virtual ceremony.

Speaking from her home, Cllr Judy Brandis said:

"First I want to thank everyone who has supported my fundraising activity over the past 10 months and contributed to raising this fantastic sum for a deserving local charity.

"It is just disappointing that I couldn't present this cheque in person."

On hearing the news Shushana Kendrick, Nest Aylesbury Vale Co-ordinator, said:

"I cannot thank Cllr Brandis enough for selecting Nest Aylesbury Vale as her charity and all the people who so generously supported her fundraising activities.

"With the current lockdown some families are finding life very difficult and we are doing our very best to continue to keep in contact with them, providing both practical and emotional support at this time, while complying with government advice.

"And, like many charities we are not able to undertake many of our usual fundraising activities, so this donation has come at a critical time for us."

Nest Aylesbury Vale is a local charity that provides an accessible and equitable support service for families, with children under five, living in Aylesbury Vale.

Their service is free at the point of delivery and families can refer themselves. They are independent and are responsible for raising their own funding.
