Nursery hopes for cash to build new home


A Henfield nursery hopes to build a brand new home for itself – but it needs your help to be in with a chance of securing the money to do so.

Little Gems is currently based at Henfield Youth Centre, which has submitted a bid for £20,000 to the Aviva Community Fund.

The youth centre now needs people to log on to the fund’s website and vote for its project.

Explaining how the money would be used, a spokesman said: “Our vision is to provide a central hub where young people and family needs can be met under one roof.

“Our immediate aim is to make changes to our existing premises which will allow us to operate a full day care nursery independently of the youth club, allowing us to open the youth club earlier to provide facilities and support in the period immediately after school rather than only in the evening when the nursery has closed.”

This year, the Aviva Community Fund will provide up to £25,000 to more than 800 UK projects across six categories.
