There’s a twist with Mill Lodge Children’s Centre enjoying a brand new outside activity area courtesy of the Nat West Bank and local property developers, Damson Homes…

The twist being Damson Homes providing the funding whilst the Bankers provided all the lifting and the digging!

Mill Lodge Children’s Centre were treated to the brand new outside activity area with the combined effort of local businesses.

It was heart-warming to see the young children enjoying the new facilities we have worked so hard to provide.

Our garden makeover is amazing. It is lovely to see our local children
playing in a much more exciting and stimulating environment, they love it!
We are really grateful for all the support from NatWest and Damson Homes.

Esther Brooks, Mill Lodge.

It is so rewarding to be able to make a difference to the community we work in, giving something back. It is great that NatWest encourage us to take part in challenges such as this.

Sally Anne Richardson, NatWest Bank.
